FIRST Volunteer Recognition

Thank you, FIRST® volunteers! 

We know that without you we couldn’t even begin to make an impact on students around the world. Because of your commitment to making a difference as a volunteer, FIRST® not only exists but is growing! It is your support and dedication that empowers students to become innovators, problem solvers, and better global citizens. While nothing we can offer will equate with what you give to our students, please take advantage of some of our recognition items. 


Season Theme Digital Content: Celebrate your volunteer spirit on your social networks by displaying a new badge, profile picture, or header! You can download season theme digital content including wallpapers for your devices.

The pins can be purchased from our Volunteer Recognition Store or you can download the digital graphics to add to your online profiles or email signatures.
