Potential Sponsor,

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 5112 “The Gongoliers,” would like to have you as a sponsor to assist us with our upcoming exciting robotics events. “The Gongoliers” are from Ponaganset High School, the only public high school in Rhode Island with a FRC team. Check out the official FRC website (http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc) Team 5112 seeks to design accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.

This is The Gongoliers’ second year participating in FRC and we are fully expecting an exceptional season. Last year, we received several awards throughout the season. In our FIRST competition in Groton, Connecticut we earned the Rookie Inspiration Award and the Highest Rookie Seed award. Seeing as it was our FIRST competition as a team, we put forth an outstanding effort. In our next competition, we received the Rookie All Star Award and again, the Highest Rookie Seed award. Overall, Team 5112 placed 17th out of over one hundred New England teams.

The robotics team of Ponaganset High School, are going to be involved in the future workforce! In the FRC season, we have to construct a robot from scratch, program the robot, assemble parts, compete in competitions where we have to learn to fix the robot when something goes wrong and continue to play! We learn valuable skills from FRC as many of us are going into engineering based careers as we leave high school.

Your support would provide us with the financial aid that we need to be successful. With your assistance, our team would be able to afford the following items; parts for the robot, team shirts, pit construction, electronics, drivetrain components, team transportation, and advertising supplies.

In order to give you the best experience as our sponsor, we would do our best to advertise your company to its full potential. “The Gongoliers” have several different levels of sponsorship which are featured in the sponsorship commitment form enclosed with this letter. As our sponsor, your logo, company name, and sponsorship level would be displayed on our website. Please contact us at (thegongoliers@fgschools.com) Also, visit our website for more information and to view our team (http://thegongoliers.com/)

We hope you consider being a part of our team!
