Encore Online Challenge: VIQC Middle School VEX World Robotics Championship
The REC Foundation wants to continue celebrating the achievements of the teams that qualified for the 2020 VEX Worlds Fantasy Robotics Tournament. We recognize many students were disappointed the 2020 VEX Robotics World Championship in Louisville, KY was cancelled, so we are excited to share an opportunity that may provide an additional pathway to qualify for the 2021 Remote VEX Robotics World Championship. We would love to invite back all the teams that qualified in 2020, but unfortunately that is not possible. Instead, the REC Foundation is selecting 50 VIQC Middle School teams for an opportunity to attend the 2021 VEX Robotics World Championship through the Encore Online Challenge.
Eligible teams for the Encore Online Challenge must continue working hard this season! Eligible teams need to submit a PDF document with their team information and a (3) three-minute video sharing how they persevered after the 2020 season including their accomplishments this season. Teams should carefully review the eligibility, judging and requirements section below.
Winners for the Encore Online Challenge will be announced by Friday April 23rd.

Its been a rough season for us with our team getting caught up in quaranties 3 times and having to miss 3 competitions because...
The members from Function of Construction are excited about having the opportunity to experience everything Worlds has to offer. This accomplishment was the highlight of a hard fought battle to succeed last year. We have watched our other teams make it to Worlds for two years as bystanders and then finally it was our turn. Then COVID19 took away our dream of participating in one of the most glorious parts of VEX. Despite having these setbacks, we continued to push forward until we finally made it. Being given this chance again will...
Hello, we are team 11110Z. We have all been in robotics for 2 years though 5th and 6th grades. Except for two of our teammates, Evelyn and Payton, they were on a robotics in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. All of us were on the team that qualified for worlds last year. We all work very well together and have fun together. We think that we should go to Worlds because we all qualified for it last year, and we have worked so hard. We hope that you enjoy our Encore Project.
Hi, we are the Athenabots 55821Z. Our team consists of 5 girls. Four of the five of us have been together for three years and the 5th girl joined last year so we know each other very well and are all good friends. We have fun together and would love to be able to participate in Worlds this year. Our goal is to qualify at our State tournament, but we would still enjoy having another opportunity to qualify. Only one of us has ever been to Worlds and the rest of the team was so excited to go to worlds when Covid hit. To go to Vex IQ Worlds virtually would be the best reward our team...
