Use this thread to suggest names for the planet. Rules are below. We'll collect names until Monday Aug 6. Here are the rules:


DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE Presented By The Boeing Company brings us to a planet in deep space that is as mysterious as it is inhospitable. This lifeless planet presents many challenges: Its atmosphere is toxic, its ever-changing landscape is dangerous and unpredictable, and...it has no name. Would you like to name it? Now is your team's chance to influence our story and be forever known as the team that gave our planet its name!

The FIRST Robotics Competition 2019 "Name the Planet" Contest is open to all past FIRST Robotics Competition teams with plans on returning during the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition season, as well as all rookie teams for the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition season. Only ONE submission is allowed per team, and must be submitted by the Lead Coach/Mentor 1 or 2 as designated within the Team Dashboard. If your team does not yet have a permanent team number, please use your assigned temporary team number. Submissions must be complete by 11:59PM EDT on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 to be considered.

Name the Planet Contest rules:

(1) No submissions may contain material protected by intellectual property laws, including, by way of example, and not as limitation, copyright or trademark laws (or by rights of privacy or publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents to do the same. For example, "Disneyland" is not an appropriate name.

(2) The Planet Name will represent your team and FIRST, and it must be designed in the spirit of FIRST Core Values.

(3) The Planet Name should be written using characters in the modern Latin alphabet not exceeding 50 characters (including spaces).

(4) It is important that we know the correct pronunciation of your planet name. Although the pronunciation of many names is obvious, some require special attention. The pronunciation guide is a way to help us pronounce your planet name correctly. The pronunciation guide should be written for English language speakers. For example, "Raul Gonzalez" would have a pronunciation guide similar to "rah-OOL gon-SAH-les". It's recommended to use a pronunciation resource such as the following document in creating your pronunciation guide:  https://www.tntech.edu/assets/userfiles/resourcefiles/8487/1450475497_Name%20Pronunciation%20Instructions.pdf

By submitting your entry into this survey, you irrevocably grant to FIRST and its assigns, licensees, and successors the right to use your submitted Planet Name in all forms and media including composite or modified representations for all purposes, including advertising, trade, or any commercial purpose throughout the universe and in perpetuity. You also waive the right to inspect or approve the use of the Planet Name for publication or other written copy used in connection with the Planet Name.

Please note, we are collecting the name and email address of the Lead Coach/Mentor 1 or 2 who fills out the contest entry in order to ensure only ONE contest entry per team is received, to follow up with your team if needed, and to notify you if your entry is selected.
