A friendly reminder that you need to file a W-9 form with FIRST each year. This is the form that allows us to send money to your school account and is needed to ship your Kit of Parts. The completed form needs to faxed to FIRST by early December
Info on W-9s can be found on the FIRST website at http://www.usfirst.org/community/frc/content.aspx?id=462
Also, some of you have asked questions about PO’s. You can use a PO for early shipment of the controller and not be billed until early December. All PO’s will be billed by the fist week in December prior to the Kit of Parts shipping.
If you have paid and you receive a phone call from a Boeing mentor in the next week or two, then FIRST will refund or credit your PO and will then apply Boeing dollars. Boeing is still awarding grants that were re-allocated after NASA grants so all this hassle is worth it for the money. Keep your fingers crossed!
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
