The High Voltage Couch Bananas were awarded their 2nd consecutive South Idaho State Championship this past weekend in the Micron Foundation 2017 FLL Championships at CWI in Twin Falls. In addition to the Champions Award, the Bananas also received a the sole nomination to submit their project to the 2017 XPrize Global Innovation Challenge. This means that they will be representing Idaho alongside North Idaho champions Xanterra FLL, also a repeating champion team, in international competition in Houston at the FLL World Festival in April.
To help the Bananas with their upcoming travel expenses, please contact us here. We will be setting up a funding page shortly, but would love to talk to any corporations or individuals who would be interested in supporting these young innovators!
