Event volunteers are the heart and soul of VEX competitions. We rely
on Referees to keep things fair, Emcees to keep things exciting, and
Queuers to keep things on schedule! Volunteering at a VEX competition

Dell Technologies is a long-time supporter of the Robotics Education
& Competition Foundation and a global leader in enabling businesses
and service providers to transform their operations and deliver IT as
a service. Dell Technologies supports teams around the world through
team grants and regional/state championships. Dell Technologies is
also a global sponsor of VEX Worlds! Last season, Dell Technologies,

Perhaps one of the most exciting aspects of their support to the REC

their entire robotics program. Check out last year’s winners and
