SBPLI, Inc. coordinates the Long Island Regional FIRST competition and is charged with raising over $200,000 annually necessary to put on the robotics competition. As a nonprofit organization, SBPLI relies on the generous contributions of its sponsors. All Long Island technology leaders are urged to support SBPLI’s FIRST Robotics Competition.
By joining us as a sponsor, you will help ensure that our high school students, Long Island's future high-tech workforce, are better able to engage in the vital fields of science, technology and engineering. This will further the security of Long Island's future as a leading technology region. With nearly 50 teams from the Long Island Regional FIRST competition competing each year, you have the chance to reach thousands of participants and spectators.
Attend the SBPLI Long Island Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, with one or more of the decision makers from your company, to witness the impact of FIRST. Companies that support FIRST reap many benefits, including stocking the talent pool, building community relations and corporate awareness and providing team building and enrichment opportunities for employees.
