First Lego League Volunteers Needed!

Many volunteers are needed to make the Nebraska City First Lego League State Qualifying Tournament on January 17th a success.  There is a job for everyone….whether you are in to robotics or not!  Here’s a list of Volunteer Positions.

To volunteer, create a user account on the FIRST Volunteer Information and Matching System (VIMS). The FIRST VIMS will guide you through:

  • creating a FIRST volunteer user account
  • indicating the event in which you would like to volunteer (Pick Nebraska City on January 17th please!)
  • selecting a preferred volunteer position

New this year, all volunteers must be screened through the FIRST Youth Protection Program. Once logged into the FIRST VIMS, volunteers will be linked to the Verified Volunteers system; you do not need to provide your social security number nor pay the $2.50 to volunteer for the Nebraska FIRST Program.

Thank you for volunteering to make a difference in the lives of our youth!
