FIRST, John Deere Inspire
Grants to California, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee, and Wisconsin nonprofit youth organizations serving youth ages 14-18 to compete in a robotics competition. Funding is intended to help teams of participants design, build, and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. The grant covers costs normally paid to FIRST by teams, such as for registration, robot kits or parts, and field setup kits.
The FIRST Robotics Competition gives high school students and their adult mentors the opportunity to work and create together to solve a common problem. Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors.
The grants are available for participants within a 40-mile driving distance from the nearest John Deere Facility (excludes John Deere Dealers). In the U.S, this includes the John Deere Inspire home communities listed below:
