EDC in Willmar, Minn., votes to help with startup funding for student robotics contest

Email

WILLMAR -- Saying it will help boost youth interest in technical careers, the operating board of the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development Commission voted Thursday to help with the startup funding for a student robotics contest.

The EDC's $5,000 contribution will support the local introduction of the BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology) competition, which combines the hands-on experience of building a robot with sports-like teamwork and judging.
