For Team 293, the support we receive from our sponsors is just as critical to our success as the valuable materials we use to build our robots. With that idea in mind, we’ve established five levels of sponsorship, named for some of the things our team uses: Copper, Aluminum, Silicon, Carbon Fiber, and Inspiration. At every level, Team 293 will value your sponsorship and your support now will entitle your organization to the benefits of sponsorship through our 2019 season!
We will proudly display the logos of our Copper Sponsors on our website, on our bulletin board inside HVCHS, and on the robot. This tier also includes a Certificate of Sponsorship, suitable for framing. In addition, your name will be announced at competitions when Team 293 is introduced.
Our Aluminum Sponsors receive all the benefits of Copper and are entitled to a larger logo on the robot. We will also display the logos of Aluminum Sponsors in our pit at competitions, making you even more visible to all the competitors, mentors, and officials.
In addition to all the benefits of Aluminum and a more prominent logo display, we will award our Silicon Sponsors a team T-shirt (which will feature your logo!) and a photo of the team holding your logo. Wear and display them proudly, and show the strength of your support to Team 293.
Carbon Fiber: $2,000+
One of Team 293’s unique skills is our use of carbon fiber. And so it is our Carbon Fiber sponsors that most make Team 293 strong and competitive. Our Carbon Fiber sponsors receive all the benefits of Silicon, with our most prominent logo display. We will also award our Carbon Fiber Sponsors with a custom wall plaque, which like our carbon fiber panels will be designed and fabricated by our students in our shop.
Inspiration Sponsor: $5,000+
Inspiration is an indispensable and integral ingredient in FIRST Robotics and in Team 293. The invaluable sponsors, who are an inspiration to us, will receive all of the benefits of a Carbon Fiber Sponsorship as well as the ability to craft a public event or appearance involving the robot and team members. At competitions, our Drive Team would also proudly wear any logo baseball cap you can provide.
Friends Of SPIKE Program
In addition to these sponsorship levels, we would be proud to call any local businesses and friends that make significant in-kind contributions, a “Friend of SPIKE,” and mention you as a Friend of SPIKE on the team’s bulletin board and our website.
An Important Note
Both monetary support, and if applicable, the value of goods or services you provide to the team, count toward your sponsorship level. Please make checks payable to “PETS For SPIKE,” with the memo “For the Benefit of Team 293.” (Mid-Atlantic Robotics is our regional organization and a 501(c)(3) organization.) Thanks for your help to keep us rolling!
