The Power Hawks epitomize all that FIRST® advocates: excellence in problem solving and design, team spirit, gracious professionalism and maturity, and the ability to overcome obstacles. Last year we raised money from several gracious companies. Without their help it would be impossible to support a team of over 40 students who work tirelessly to create a successful robot for competition, whose price reaches into the thousands of dollars.
Please consider supporting a cause that helps develop students who are engaged in a field that help keep this country competitive on a global front.
We have five different levels of sponsorship. Each level includes the successive levels below it.
