Sponsorship Information

Thank you for your interest in the Jackson County 4-H Robotics Program! I am a founding leader of the program, and I am very proud of the results that we have achieved since we began in 2012. We have participated in the worldwide FIRST Robotics competition with an extraordinary group of high school students who are taking important early steps in their career paths for multiple years now.  

 

We are looking to our local business leaders to step up to help grow this program which will ultimately produce engineers and software designers who will be joining Georgia’s workforce in the next five years.

 

Our program calls for an annual budget of about $10,000. The budget is required to buy the equipment to build the robot, to pay for entry fees for the FIRST competition, and for travel to the competitions.  The program is run by volunteers and is held under the 501(c)(3) status of the Georgia 4-H Foundation. 

 

We are deeply indebted to our supporters—both individuals and companies—for their help in building this important program. The attached pages detail how to make a contribution as well as the benefits of sponsorship.  If you have programs for charitable giving, or for grants related to your industry, we would certainly appreciate your sponsorship.  Without any doubt at all, you will be helping kids set a career course that will be beneficial to them, as well as to our local industry.
