All FIRST events require volunteers. Judges, referees, emcees, hospitality, logistics, marketing, and more. Statewide volunteers will number in the thousands. Each of the programs have committees that guide the season’s challenge each year. These are the core group of professionals who contribute their time each year to ensure the season goes smoothly for our young engineers.
