Showcase program

No one tells – or shows – the FIRST story better than FIRST teams!  We are raising the bar in showcasing FIRST, and we’re inviting WOW FIRST  teams to be an active part of our regions outreach efforts, gain some recognition for your teams and schools, and hone student marketing and presentation skills in the process.

Congratulations to 2018’s WOW Showcase teams!

These are our teams that have gone above and beyond to spread the message of FIRST to their community.

Go FIRST Teams!
