Community College System Applauds Governor's

Robotics Competition Program


Concord, NH - The Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) today praised the Governor's State of the State mention of a new robotics competition designed to incentivize students to stay in NH for college. 

"The community college system looks forward to welcoming students through the Governor's Cup robotics competition," said Shannon Reid, CCSNH Director of Communications.  "These students show interest and expertise that can translate into success in an array of academic programs the community colleges offer - including robotics but also in diverse skills in areas such as business, marketing, mathematics, programming and a range of technology fields."

Reid said community college programs offer pathways to immediate high-demand employment opportunities, and also serve as an affordable start to a four-year degree via numerous transfer agreements.
