Encore Online Challenge: VRC 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 VRC 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.
We believe that there are five ingredients needed in a recipe for team success: 1) diversity; 2) perseverance; 3) consistency; 4) growth mindset and 5) resilience. We hope that you enjoy our Encore Challenge Video - "Chemistry: Recipe for Team Success!"

Hi, my name is Odin and I am in 8th grade. I qualified for Worlds last year in 7th grade. Due to the pandemic, our small school size, and our schools being remote and hybrid, no other middle school students wanted to do VRC this year. I am a solo team. Thank you for considering my video and submission!
