Sponsor Teams

Interested in supporting teams directly but not sure how to do it?

We can administer Team Grants and help advertise the opportunity to schools and interested groups around the state. These grants can be set up for specific groups, regions, or left open -- it's up to you! See our grants page to see some examples of existing grants! 

The general costs for teams in each program are outlined below. Different organizations choose to sposnor teams in different ways. You can cover cost of registration, kits, or help support travel. Sponsors can also specifiy how they would like to be acknowledged for their contribution.

To talk to someone about setting up a Team Grant, please contact us at firstak@jedc.org or 907-523-2334.
