2016 Safety Animation Contest Date?

Does anyone know when the safety animation is supposed to start? My teammates and I need to prepare ahead of time and I cannot find a start date anywhere on the first website.

According to the team lead end, it should be tonight but it is not yet up, nor is it on any calendar.

Did anyone find out about the date yet?

No, there is still dates up on the FIRST website or Twitter account.

Email that just went out says this:

Safety Animation Award update: There will be a Safety Animation Award for the 2016 season, and we will be announcing information regarding the award in the near future. We apologize for the delay, and thank you for your patience!
