Excellence Award and Online Challenge


I understand that in order to get an interview slot for Excellence Award at World Championship, the team will first need to be an Excellence Award winner at other events and must submit at least 2 online challenges.

I would like to get clarification on whether the Photography Challenge is considered as one of the 2 online challenges required.

You are correct. In order for a VRC team to be considered for Excellence at Worlds they must submit at least two Online Challenges. One of these may be the Online Photography contest. The deadline for submitting Online Challenges is January 13 at 11:59 AM. The Online Challenges may be found at http://challenges.robotevents.com/ .

In addition to completing the Online Challenges, the team must have been awarded the Excellence Award at an official VRC Tournament or state/regional championship event this season.

Finally teams wishing to be considered for the Excellence Award at Worlds must sign up for both an Excellence interview and Design Award consideration. The team must submit an Engineering Notebook during check in at Worlds. Teams may sign up for the Excellence Award interview and Design Award consideration on the Worlds’ presubmitted awards page found at: http://challenges.robotevents.com/

The presubmitted Awards deadline is March 20, 2016. 11:59:59 PM CDT.
