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.

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!
