The Governor’s Cup Hosted by Battle of the Bay

Prospect Mountain High School

Registration Is Now Closed

What is The Governor's Cup?

The Governor’s Cup is an elite offseason event welcoming FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) teams from all over the state of New Hampshire to compete for awards and scholarships based on robot performance and judged elements. Started in cooperation with Governor Chris Sununu’s administration in 2018, The Governor’s Cup began as a full day of exhibition and competition. Scholarships will be awarded based on team performance in the competition and individual student nominations by team mentors.

For 2021, Governor’s Cup is joining forces with another fall offseason event, Battle of the Bay, creating a unique competition opportunity for teams in New Hampshire and from across New England.

What will Governor's Cup Hosted by Battle of The Bay look like?

This combination event will be held at Prospect Mountain High School, the past home of Battle of the Bay event, rather than the past location of the Governor’s Cup, the Plymouth State main campus.

The Battle of the Bay event has always welcomed teams from across New England, and this year is no different. However, the Governor’s Cup tuition waiver and individual mentor scholarships will only be eligible to teams/individuals who reside in New Hampshire or are on a team that resides in New Hampshire.

What awards will there be?

Here is a list of the awards that will be awarded:

  • We had GP Even When Competing for Scholarships Award – Celebrates outstanding demonstration of FIRST Core Values such as continuous Gracious Professionalism® working together both on and off the playing field.
