Priority will be given to new SeaPerch coaches/teams but that should not keep seasoned teams from applying.  Teams must commit to competition in the 2019 USI SeaPerch Challenge.  The deadline to apply is December 7, 2018.  Awardees will be notified on December 14, 2018.  Click here for a link to the application form.
