Any financial support to help finance our trip to state would be greatly appreciated! Your support from past years for Lazbuddie Robotics has been great! We will use the money to pay for the motel rooms and food for the students. The football concession was a fundraiser for Robotics; however, it does not cover all our expenses for the regional and state competition.
If you decide to send a donation, your name will be included on a banner in our booth and in a thank you ad in the Farwell and Muleshoe newspapers in January.
Thanks again! The community support has been awesome!
A proud Lazbuddie Robotics team gets ready to move to the next level. The team won 1st Place BEST Team in Lubbock.
