Online Challenges Registraion

So my organization is not registered to compete and is competing in online challenges. We are still competing remotely but do we have to get our registration paid for by Dec 8th to be considered for any winnings for the Online Challenges? (Plus any Worlds spots)

Edit: We are still getting our team registered, but do we need to be registered by Dec 8th to be considered for any Online Challenge winnings that are due by that date?

Quote from the Make It Real CAD Challenge:
" The team submitting the entry must be registered in the current season’s VRC/VEX U program."
I assume the same holds true for the other challenges, even though it isn’t explicitly stated.

That is correct Correct. Teams must be registered to be considered for an online challenge.
