Last FLL competition season’s Animal Allies challenge brought Delaware students together to create impressive solutions to real problems… also requiring them to work together to build amazing, graciously professional teams. Teams— you inspired each other as well as the judges and referees.

Before we all get into the next challenge, here’s a look back on some of the fun times, great spirit and awesome costumes- including photos from the first-ever qualifier event at Delaware Boys and Girls Club in Dover and the exciting state championship at Delaware State University. Enjoy!
