FIRST CANADA MARK AND RHONA BREADNER LEADERSHIP FUND

Through the generosity of the Mark and Rhona Breadner fund, FIRST Canada is proud to encourage and reward young STEM First Nations and Black youth enthusiasts as nominated by their teacher mentors. 

This prize will encourage successful FIRST LEGO League team-aged members (9-14 years old) to continue with their STEM interests and progress into the FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition teams and programs run by FIRST Robotics Canada. 

Winning students will receive a unique FIRST Robotics Canada orange hoodie with a custom logo. Additionally, $1000 will be available to students to use as follows:

    • Option 1: $500 toward a FIRST team registration in Canada (FLL, FTC, or FRC) & $500 toward a personal FLL or FTC starter kit
    • Option 2: $1000 toward registration fee and/or kit for a FIRST team

In addition to the funding, individualized mentoring opportunities will also be available to the selected recipients.
