LEGO Season Update

Over 200 teams across Utah have registered to compete in this season’s FIRST LEGO League. That includes 2 brave teams from Sevier County who will be competing in January 2016. One of those teams will be representing us this year!

To help support them, Sevier County 4-H will be hosting a tournament at the Fairgrounds on January 9, 2016. This cannot happen without amazing volunteers like YOU.

A successful qualifying tournament requires wonderful people who are willing to support the hard work of the youth involved. These teams of youth practice all season (May to January) to compete on tournament day.

So, how can you help?
We are currently looking for teen and adult volunteers who can fill important tournament roles.
