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.

Robo-Nadoes is a team from southeast Arkansas.  Last year, they had an excellent VEX IQ season.  They practiced many hours and had their sights set on the Arkansas State VEX IQ Championship.  Once they qualified for the state championship, they were determined to bring home a trophy.  They succeeded by bringing home the Excellence Award and the Skills Champion Award.  They double qualified for Worlds and were super excited.  They were finally going to get the chance to represent their state at VEX Worlds.  This all came to a halt when the pandemic...
