General Info

Welcome to the AHS Eagle Nation Challenge!

We are thrilled to host a fully integrated High School and Middle School event in the state's largest venue!  We have a large gym with balcony seating for all teams to be right in the middle of the action throughout the entire tournament.  Skills fields will be running all throughout the tournament and continue up to the end of the qualification rounds.  Interviews will be conducted by local engineers and former robotics students just like you!  Thank you for registering for this event and be ready for a great competition and year.  Pizza will continue to be offered at $10 per pizza alongside our fully stocked concession stand complete with hamburgers, hotdogs, popcorn, snacks, and drinks.  Pizza orders will be taken the week before the competition.

Looking forward to it and please don't hesitate to ask any questions via email.

Good luck!
