Sponsor Information

The Northeast Ohio FIRST Robotics Alliance proudly announces a series of FIRST robotics tournaments happening right here in the Mahoning Valley!  NEOFRA and the Art Outreach Gallery, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (ID number 27-0711743) collaborate each year to provide these competitive STEM experiences to hundreds of middle and high school students from Ohio and beyond. 

On September 25, 2016, our NEOFRA Mahoning Valley Robotics Challenge (MVRC) event in Austintown will attract up to 32 high school FIRST Robotics Competition teams to the region.  Students will bring their big FRC robots and compete in this year's high-energy FRC game challenge, FIRST Stronghold.  

NEOFRA teams are also once again co-planning two FIRST LEGO League Regional Qualifying Tournaments for middle school students, where top teams will qualify for the Northeast Ohio District Tournament to be held in January 2017.  Up to forty-eight Ohio FLL teams will compete in one of the two regional tournaments – the NEOFRA Warren Delphi E.L.I.T.E. Regional in Warren or another NEOFRA FLL Regional hosted in a to-be-announced location.  Both of these events will be held in December 2016. 

We are asking for your tax-deductible investment in our NEOFRA teams and events.  Your support helps keep our FIRST robotics teams and competitions running strong.  Your sponsorship will be recognized at all three NEOFRA competitions mentioned above.  Please see the included tier table describing the different levels of sponsor recognition you are eligible to receive.

Dozens of adult volunteers and mentors will be present at each of these tournaments.  All NEOFRA events are free and open to the public.  Large spectator crowds and print and TV media coverage are expected across all events.  This combined audience will provide excellent exposure for your business.
