FLL - Animal Allies: Volunteers are needed for the NYC FLL tournaments...

A Call for Volunteers!

     We are about to begin our tournament season in which we are planning for 200 NYC schools/teams to participate in tournaments across the 5 boroughs.  Throughout the months of January- March NYC FIRST will be hosting NYC First Lego League Robotics Tournaments.  To learn more about FIRST please go here:  http://www.nycfirst.org/programs/fll   We would love to get the schools and communities of NYC more involved with judging and continue the amazing work we do with our kids outside of the traditional classroom setting.  So, this is my official call for volunteers!  If you or anyone you can think of would be willing to give up just 1 Saturday or Sunday to come and be a judge for an event, it would be greatly appreciated.  Please share this with your staff, friends or anyone you think would be interested in helping.  I've attached the link for with the descriptions of the volunteering roles.  Please peruse the "Judge" roles here: http://www.firstlegoleague.org/event/volunteerroles  We will provide breakfast, lunch and a stylish NYC FIRST T-Shirt for your efforts.  Judges are asked to arrive at 8am and will be done around 2:00-2:30 at which point you may leave or join in the rest of the festivities.

Please follow this link to register for an event:  https://goo.gl/forms/ZrqGHXaLLNvd9CW72
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.  If you are not interested, please do not neglect to pass this along far and wide to anyone you know it will be greatly appreciated by NYC FIRST and by the nearly 1,000 students participating in NYC FIRST.

Thank you so much for your anticipated support,
