Become a Sponsor

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please begin by reaching out to Sheri Minarski at 607.254.6353. Becoming a sponsor is easy. We've provided a sponsorship form that you can fill out and return to us via email to Once received we will send you a sponsorship letter for your records and to sign and return to us for our records.

Monetary gifts should be given from the sponsor to Cornell University, which then handles the distribution of the funds to the finalist teams. A sponsorship letter can be written however to include the names of all finalist teams if that is of help. Gift-in-kind donations are typically given directly from the sponsor to the teams, and Cornell will work with you to help set this up.

Once you become a sponsor we will work with you to set up your sponsorship level benefits. We will also be contacting you for additional promotional materials such as the logo you would like posted on the website and other publications.
