Innovate Award Submission Discrepancy


Dale Nacianceno (Event Partner)
14-Jan-2024

Guide to Judging:

Note: For physical notebooks, submissions for the Innovate Award must be done either by using the Innovate Award Submission Information Form or through an entry in the Engineering Notebook with the equivalent information as the last entry in the notebook. For Digital Engineering Notebooks, this may be done for each team by using the RobotEvents Digital Engineering Notebook link upload feature found in the team contact’s dashboard on RobotEvents.com under “My Account”.

Q&A 1853:

Only one feature or attribute should be submitted for the Innovate Award. Teams that attempt to stack multiple features or attributes into a single submission should have their submissions removed from consideration.

How should each scenario be handled?

  1. A team submits a valid Innovate Award submission through RobotEvents, but their Digital Notebook contains an Innovate Award Submission Information Form about a different feature of the robot.
  2. A team submits a valid Innovate Award submission through RobotEvents, but their Digital Notebook contains 3 features/attributes on a separate Innovate Award Submission Information Form.
  3. A team submits a valid Innovate Award submission through their Digital Notebook on a separate Innovate Award Submission Information Form, but their Innovate Award submission through RobotEvents contains 3 features/attributes.

All of your examples include multiple submissions, as such would be treated similarly.
