First Palmetto Regional is encouraging the local community members, parents and guardians to get involved in the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition to be held at Myrtle Beach Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This event will be the largest hosted by Palmetto Regional and anyone is invited to assist us. We have compiled a list of areas to serve or assist us below:

Screening of volunteers, who work with youth programs, is a generally accepted industry standard. For the 2014 season, the screening process that FIRST will use for volunteers who register in our Volunteer Information and Matching System (VIMS) with home addresses in the U.S. will include an online check of the Nationwide Sex Offender Registry and a Multi-state Criminal Super Search.
