I’d like to see an Elementary, Middle School, High School, and University winner per on-line challenge. Even if the monetary reward was reduced, it would mean more teams can earn a bid to WOrlds, and my middle schoolers wouldn’t be so hesitant to enter as when they know they are competing against 17 and 18 year old students.
We appreciate your feedback, and will take this into consideration. Some Online Challenges do have age group categories, while others do not. The rules and categories for each challenge are chosen carefully each year, based on many factors including but not limited to all opportunities available for each age group, prizes awarded, requirements, level of difficulty, and much more.
