The 11th Annual Ship Repair Virtual LEGO Competition is underway! With 22 SCHOOLS registered to compete, this year promises to be our biggest and best ever! The event - which promotes the ship repair industry while increasing competitive mathematical, analytical and conceptual skills in middle school aged students - will take place on March 23, 2017 at Nauticus. However, in order to ensure the success of this one-of-a-kind, vital program for our next generation of ship repairers, we need your help.
Please consider contributing a tax-deductible sponsorship to the Virginia Ship Repair Foundation (a 501(c)(3) organization) for this event!
Sponsorship funds go towards prizes, awards, lunches, and t-shirts (with your company logo!) for the competing students. This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and represent your company!
SPONSOR TODAY and then join us on March 23 at Nauticus to find out who will take home the Grand Prize!
Contact Sallena Nikitas to get involved: (757) 233-7034 or SNikitas@VirginiaShipRepair.org.
