Boa Constructors FLL Worlds Trip
On December 14th, 2015, the Boa Constructors won the WV State Championship Tournament at Fairmont State University. With their state championship title, Sarah McClure, Riley Sparks, Ian Jackson, Cade McMunigal, Bryce Sabol, Lane Skinner, Seana Sabol, Owen Jackson and Luke Jackson earned the right to represent West Virginia at the FIRST World Championships in the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri this coming April. They are one of only 108 teams invited to represent over 29,000 teams that participated worldwide this year.
Our 4-H club will be bearing the cost of the trip for these middle schoolers and their coaches. Our estimates for full funding of this week of competition in Missouri is $15,000 which includes van or bus transportation to and from St. Louis, five nights of lodging in St. Louis, the tournament registration fee, team uniform t-shirts, and a small daily stipend for the kids for meals during the week.
It is our hope that you will see this great opportunity for our Monroe County 4-Hers to represent our great state and be inclined to support them financially. As you consider your level of sponsorship, keep in mind this is a World Trip for State Champions. Help us send them on an experience of a lifetime!
All levels of support are greatly appreciated! Your tax deductible donations can be made through this site. Local donors can also make donations to the “Nick-O-Time 4-H Club” at the Bank of Monroe.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
