I would like to follow up on this discussion thread: https://vexforum.com/t/worlds-excellence-award-high-school-qualification-question/20603/1
I found the rubric that Miller Roberts referred to. This document talks about local competitions and the World Championships. I have two more questions about the Excellence Award specifically at the World Championships:
- “1 A QR Ranking Point is earned for finishing in the top 8 of the qualifying matches (one point available)”
Given that each division at the World Championships will probably contain over 100 teams, does a team still need to be in the top 8 of the division to earn one point? If not, what within what position does a team need to finish in, in order to earn a point?
- “4 Judge Ranking points are awarded for every judged award for which a team is a finalist (up to 4 points available)”
Do the online challenges count as “judged awards”. That is, if a team is a finalist in an online challenge, does that give a team one additional point?
