Since there won’t be a World Championship for 2020, I have a few ideas about ways for some of the usual awards could be given out:
The teams with the #1 Skills scores in their grade levels could be declared the World Skills Champions for 2020. (The main drawback to this would be that some teams ended their regular seasons earlier, but were planning to get a higher Skills score at Worlds - or they had to end their seasons early because of COVID-19.)
If possible, judged awards could be determined by having eligible teams submit notebooks for a group of judges to review them, and be given video interviews, and then Design, Excellence, and other judged awards could be determined based on those. (Excellence and Amaze could also consider their performance throughout the year, and videos that exist of their robots in action, while Build could also consider photos and videos of their robots, and Think could consider their performances in Autonomous.)
If there are concerns about the process being incomplete compared to most events, the awards could be considered as something more unofficial, and Excellence wouldn’t qualify for next year’s Worlds.
I’m guessing the whole process of choosing the awards might not be feasible since some teams had to end their seasons sooner than others, and especially if some potential Excellence winners wouldn’t have the time to be interviewed under the circumstances, but I wanted to put the idea out there in case it would work.
