New York City Citywide Championship

The New York City FIRST LEGO League Championship Tournament will be held Saturday, January 26, 2008 at Riverbank State Park. This tournament will include up to eighty New York FIRST LEGO League. This event is a community celebration of the achievements of middle school students (ages 9-14) working smart in science and technology.

The New York City FLL State Tournament was originally held at the New York City College of Technology in downtown Brooklyn. Four years ago the tournament moved to Riverbank State Park where in the past over 140 teams participated in a two-day competition.
