Started last season, the campaign began in our local community, as we handed out flags at our competitions with #FIRSTEmpowered written on them, as well as #IamMoreThan____, prompting the individuals in the FIRST community to state the ways in which FIRST has empowered them. The main mission of the campaign is to inspire others to explore their own journeys in STEM, robotics, and business education, through featuring others’ #FIRSTEmpowered stories. 


This year, we elevated the hashtag, turning it into a global social media campaign, where we have reached over 8500 people across the world, cultivating a following on our Instagram platform, @firstempowered.


Featuring teams such as FRC 5727, 9008, 503, and 1718, #FIRSTEmpowered sparks a movement of inspiration and change, highlighting the true power of FIRST.
