I also get reimbursed by the district for things such as my wright stuff kit so that's pretty nice. Try your local high school? Good luck, I hope you figure it out, because it would suck for you to go this far and then get limited by cost.
Ha I've been milking the high school for resources and help for a while now. I'm at the high school for scio more than the high schoolers.

When you get reimbursed, do you get to keep the materials? According to our admin, the school will only consider reimbursing us for stuff they get to keep in the end... a sore spot since I do not plan on letting the school keep the battery buggies I have built. It's my hard work, sweat, and blood. Ain't gonna let it sit in a random closet till some dude either throws it away or trashes it. Balsa I plan on getting reimbursed for, since it's kind of a consumable item. Not like the school gains anything by keeping the extra balsa, because I can just buy more.

It usually works the other way around where if teams are good enough companies will come to you to give you parts, money, etc. For example, we get motors offered to us from a company (not sure which one) also we get free batteries from a local battery company a few minutes from a school. Otherwise, if you are looking for sponsors look local as they will most likely be more willing to help the school, and they will be more lenient overall, as they are a small corporation. If nothing works just try looking for parts of Ebay or ask people to "borrow" supplies (usually works for our team is we need an expensive part).
People here don't care much about science or academics in general, so it's a bit tough to find willing sponsors, especially sponsors that can help us by supplying parts and materials. Would you willing to share what company offers you motors?
Just ask you're parents. After all, it's just $28.

That’s a big oof but If I were you I would ask your tech ed teachers and ask them if you can 3D print them. I know that my high school uses 3D printed parts for mousetrap vehicle. The only thing is that you’d have to make the design for it to be printed.

? Hold on a sec first you're talking about motors now 3D printed parts... :? :?:

I have 3D printed parts, and in fact my nats buggy last year was all CF and ABS. But 1. The 3d printers kinda suck 2. The tech ed teachers at the high school are rarely available
