Be a Volunteer
Volunteers are needed to help teams and run tournaments. For information on teams in your area or to volunteer at the state tournament in Bozeman, please contact us as shown at left.
The success of FIRST programs in Montana and around the world is directly related to the generous contributions of time, talents and expertise from thousands of volunteers who support our teams, or who organize and work at our events. Simply stated, FIRST would not be possible without volunteers. We would like to extend our greatest thanks to the volunteers that have made each Montana FLL and FTC event a huge success – including all coaches, mentors, parents, and tournament volunteers!
Our 2017 Volunteers
We held the 2017 FTC, FLL and FLL Jr Montana State Tournament on January 27 - 28. It was a huge success thanks to our amazing volunteers. Over three months, one hundred and forty - two volunteers contributed about one thousand hours of their time to prepare to host about seven hundred and fifty k-12 kids. Volunteers included students, faculty and staff of The College of Engineering; The Honors College; The College of Letters and Science; The College of Education, Health and Human Development and the Livingston Public School District. Volunteers did a variety of essential tasks from building lego playing fields to judging teams' projects, to helping teams get to their competitions on time to setting up and tearing down the extensive tournament equipment. Here is a list of the 2017 volunteers, many of whom filled multiple roles and volunteered on multiple days. Additionally, many of our volunteers have contributed their time and talents for multiple years- some since the very first MT competition that took place 11 years ago! Our sincere gratitude goes out to:
