Greetings from MT Recycles,

Thank you so much for your interest in FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) and MT Recycles, the 2016 FLL Montana State Championship team! We are seeking sponsorship for our team as we prepare to travel to St. Louis, Missouri, April 27 – 30, 2016, to participate in the 2016 FLL World Festival.

The World Festival is the Olympics of FLL – a global celebration of teamwork and STEM education. Throughout the 2015/16 season, over 233,000 students participated on 29,000 teams from 80 countries across the globe. Over 1,200 qualifying events were held, and 108 teams were invited to participate in the World Festival. Montana only receives an invitation every three years, and we are so honored to be going to represent MIS and Montana this year.

FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) is an exciting and fun global robotics program that ignites an enthusiasm for discovery, science, and technology in today’s youth. Each team spends approximately 4 months working on 3 areas: The Research Project – research and solve a real-world problem based on the FLL Challenge theme and present their research and solutions; The Robot Game – design, build and program an autonomous robot out of LEGO® Mindstorms parts using engineering concepts; and the FLL Core Values – that focus on teamwork, good sportsmanship, and friendly competition. The FLL Core Values are a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals, the community, and the world. It all adds up to tons of fun while learning to apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts. For more information about FIRST and FLL please visit: and

To support this educational experience, our team needs to raise $18,000 to cover the various costs associated with our trip.

We are so honored to be representing MIS and Montana at the 2016 World Festival, and we are so grateful for your generous support! 3-2-1 LEGO®!
