PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire high school students who participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition will get an extra chance to show off their skills, and possibly earn college scholarships.
"The Governor's Cup" competition being held Sept. 28 at Plymouth State University will allow up to 50 high school seniors to earn scholarships for one semester at one of the University System of New Hampshire or community college campuses.
More than 25 teams from high schools across the state are expected to participate.
The off-season competition was created through a partnership involving Gov. Chris Sununu, FIRST New Hampshire, the university and community college systems, Eversource and BAE Systems.
