“The HTA Robotics Team seeks help raising funds for our trip to the Vex IQ Robotics World Championships in Louisville, KY. Our students have worked tirelessly this season to secure a victory at the Hawaii State Vex IQ Robotics Championships. As State Champions we now need your help to reach our goal of attending the World Championships. In order to meet this goal, we are asking for donations or sponsorships from local businesses and the HTA Ohana. By giving, you will be helping our students represent HTA and our great State of Hawaii as they compete with the best teams from around the world in this prestigious international competition.”
