When a team scans in a paper bound notebook that would receive the five point bonus would that receive the 5pt bonus in a virtual event?

Answered by Competition Judging Committee

From the Judge Guide posted at roboticseduction.org:

"Five (5) points if notebook is bound. If a Digital Engineering Notebook or a printed copy of one, five (5) points if the entries contain a time stamp that can be confirmed."

In the case you presented, a scanned notebook that contains entries that can be confirmed (because the dates in the bound notebook are sequential and contemporaneous), yes that notebook should receive the 5 pt bonus on the Engineering Notebook Rubric.
