On behalf of the REC Foundation, VEX Robotics, Autodesk, EMC Corporation, and the FUTURE Foundation, we would like to congratulate all of you who took the time to submit entries in the 2013 Online Challenge Competition.
The judges had a very difficult job. We thought 2012 was the best year ever, but this year the depth and quality of the entries was even better, which is even more amazing since the number of entries was also much higher. On behalf of all the judges, thank you for taking the time to do such great work.
The judges worked hard to evaluate your entries, and here are the winners in all seven categories. Again - congratulations to you all.
