Encore Online Challenge: VRC High 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 High School teams for an opportunity to attend the 2021 VEX Robotics World Championship through the Encore Online Challenge. 

Eligible 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.

Grant Cox Fanclub 98807A

This season, our robotics club got off to a slow start. Quarantine made it impossible for us to meet in person or get parts from school. Still, we continued meeting, and even recruited two new freshmen members! Recently, we were able to start working on our robot and our team will be competing in tournaments soon. 

Before, when we weren't able to get a kit or parts from school, we were able to spend time on our Promote Award Video (second place winner), and our Encore Video! 

Despite many extenuating circumstances that came up this season, our team would...
