Eligibility for Excellence & Design Awards at Worlds LRT and LRS

Hi! My students asked me to inquire about the official eligibility requirements for Worlds LRT and LRS Excellence and Design Awards. They looked into the judging documents and judges addendum but they haven't been officially updated since August 2020 and I know there have been a lot of changes made to the Worlds events since then.

As of 2/22/21, are teams still required to win either the Excellence or Design Award at their Worlds Qualifying event (example: States) in order to compete for Excellence and Design in their respective Worlds Tournaments?

I have included quotes of pre-qualification requirements as of the most recent update:

Prequalification: To be eligible for the Excellence Award at VEX Worlds, a team must have been awarded the Excellence Award at an event that qualifies teams directly to VEX Worlds during the current competition season. Eligible teams must submit their Engineering Notebook at VEX Worlds during the first day of check-in. Teams that have won the Excellence Award at VEX Worlds in the previous three years are not eligible for the Excellence Award at VEX Worlds. Eligible teams will be notified by email after the second weekend in March.

Eligible teams must submit their Engineering Notebook at VEX Worlds during the first day of check-in. Eligible teams will be notified by email after the second weekend in March.

Thank you in advance for your time and insight! We appreciate all that RECF is doing to remain flexible to help students continue to compete and learn during such a challenging time.

Answered by Competition Judging Committee

The judging guidelines for Remote VEX Worlds 2021 will be released in early March. These guidelines for both LRT and LRS will supersede and clarify the process for teams in qualification, deadlines and submission requirements.
