To whom it may concern

:

My name is __________, and I am a member of the White Station High School Robotics Team. The White Station Robotics Team provides opportunities for male and female students of all backgrounds to experience computer science, robotics, and engineering through exciting, challenging competitions. We instill confidence and leadership abilities in our team members. In our beginning as White Station’s first robotics team, we were merely a group of students passionate about robotics. Over the past three years, we have grown to more than two dozen members of all different ages, backgrounds, and experience. We have won awards in many competitions and hope to continue to grow. We will soon participate in the B.E.S.T. (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) Robotics State Competition at Arkansas State University in Fort Smith. In this competition, our team is given exactly six weeks to design, develop, build, and program a fully functional robot from a kit of raw materials. Then, we must market and present our robot to a strict panel of judges at the competition. In order to compete, we must raise enough money to cover expenses such as building materials and transportation costs. On October 27th our team travelled to Jonesboro in order to compete in the B.E.S.T. competition at the regional level. Because of our outstanding performance there, we were awarded third place overall from 24 schools in the region and granted a spot at the inter-state level of the competition. This next level of competition sends its winners to nationals and boasts very competitive, and well-funded, teams. Until this point, we have been entirely self-funded, with nominal club fees and small donations from parents. To be able to attend the state competition in Fort Smith, we must raise at least $2000. We ask for any support* that you can provide us. In addition to enabling us to compete, your company name will be listed on our website, be presented to the judges in our marketing presentation, be advertised on our Robotics T-Shirts that we will wear at the competition, and be promoted by the B.E.S.T. Robotics competition hub. Thank you for your support in our endeavors to compete at the State B.E.S.T. Robotics Competition!

Sincerely,

WS Robotics Team Member White Station High School 514 South Perkins Road Memphis, TN 38117
