General Info

Welcome to the Forsyth County Middle School October Competition, Full Volume. This tournament is being held at Otwell Middle School in Cumming, Georgia. We are excited to see what the brightest students in around the state of Georgia have come up with to solve the challenges of this year’s game. In addition to the normal robotics competition, we will also be having a judged costume contest for any teams or individuals that would like to participate. Participation in the costume contest is not required. When planning costumes, please know that the pit areas are very close together to accommodate as many teams as possible at our competitions.

We are requesting that any team that would like to be considered for Judged Awards such as Excellence or Design, submit their Engineering Notebook to the judges during interviews the morning of the event. For our events this season, we are asking that teams turn in a hard copy of their engineering notebook. If your team is using a digital engineering notebook, please print off a copy and bring it with you to the event.

We will be live streaming the entire event so parents can watch their students compete from the comfort and quietness of their own home if they wish. 

All participants are expected to complete the participant release form . (also available in Spanish)  Once per season covers all events. 

If you have any questions, please contact Tony Collins at [email protected].
