WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — In a story we have been following since January, area high school students put their hard work to the test in the FIRST Robotics competition at Harrison High School, Saturday.

Team's reputations are on the line moving into this final Indiana district competition. FIRST Power Up, the name of this year's game has high school students around the globe working to capture a championship.

Several Indiana teams are on the hunt, including four from Greater Lafayette. Linnea Nelson said her team has put in a lot of hours.

"People are coming three hours a night, four nights a week and then nine to five on Saturdays, this is a big time commitment," said Nelson. 

The state championship is in Kokomo on April 13 and 14. Saturday's competition determines which teams qualify for that.
