VOLUNTEERING: All South Carolina FIRST LEGO League events are ran completely by volunteers. Everyone from the check-in staff, the Robot Game queuers, the referees, the judges, and on up to the tournament directors volunteer their time. Anybody can make a great volunteer. Volunteers do not need to be an expert in everything FIRST LEGO League. If you’re interested in lending a helping hand, head over to the Volunteering page.
