We are thrilled to announce that the Montgomery County Fair Association has added an Ag Robotics Contest for the 2019 Fair. This contest is designed to offer students with an interest in STEM related fields the opportunity to compete against their peers in an agricultural focused challenge. Teams will design and use their robot to complete various tasks for points. This is a team competition for Montgomery County 4-H and FFA members and students enrolled in Montgomery County Schools.
We are seeking and welcoming participation from each of the six school districts within Montgomery County. Due to space and time constraints the contest has been limited to 50 teams total. Two teams per division (Junior 3rd-5th grade, Intermediate 6th-8th grade, Senior 9th-12th grade) will be selected from each School District within Montgomery County and the remaining 14 teams will be reserved and selected at random from County 4H & FFA Clubs.
Additional information along with Applications of Interest can be found below. All applications received will be compiled by division and district and selected at random. Should a district or organization not fill their allotted spaces for a division, the remaining team submissions from all other eligible districts will be compiled and drawn until the division/contest is filled.
We look forward to a great contest and are excited for this new addition to the Fair! We invite the public to come out and watch the Students and Robots take on the challenge on Friday April 5, 2019 in the Exhibition Building on the Montgomery County Fairgrounds!
