It is with great delight that I announce the success of my Ridgeland High School VEX Robotics 7536 A team.  My fellow teammates and I have performed extremely well and earned an invitation to the 2017 Create U. S. Open National Championship in Council Bluffs, IA on April 6-8, 2017.  We are currently ranked number one in the State and are favored to win the MS Vex Robotics State Championship later this month in Vicksburg.  With the win, we will earn an invitation to the 2017 VEX World Championship in Louisville, KY on April 19-22, 2017. This season has been an exciting one with many victories and pitfalls.  We have built and rebuilt various iterations of robots, and in the end, developed a contender that will compete with the best teams in the nation as well on the worldwide stage.  

My team and I will be attending these competitions to represent Mississippi in a 4-day event involving teams from around the world. This competition requires contestants to perform in 2 vs. 2 alliance rounds, robot driving skills, and autonomous programming.  This is a huge honor for us, and we need your help! We are now seeking contributions from our generous businesses and community to help defray the cost of this trip. These costs include:
· Team Registration $450 Create U. S. Open Nationals /$850 VEX Worlds
· Transportation approximately $450 per person, per trip
· Lodging approximately $225/night, per trip

Enclosed is this year’s sponsorship level for your review and consideration.  In return for sponsorship, the team will put your company logo, name, or any other information you want on all shirts and banners we take and wear. We will utilize social media such as Facebook and Instagram to get pictures and sponsorships out to the public. Prior to and upon return from the competition, we will mention sponsors at the school on signs and road front billboards. Each company or person who sponsors the team will get pictures to use for their own media spreads. All donations are tax deductible as well.

This is a great educational opportunity for me and any assistance you can provide will be deeply appreciated. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our teacher/coach, Mr. Bill Richardson at (601) 540-3550 (cell), 601- 879-8730 or email at brichardson4@gmail.com.

Thank you in advance for your support of Ridgeland VEX Robotics!
