General Info

Welcome to the 2024 Idaho VRC Middle School Regional Championship!

The Idaho VRC Middle School State Championship will be held at East Valley Middle School in Nampa, Idaho. Idaho VRC teams must qualify to this event through qualifying awards at local events or through Robot Skills if there are open spots available after the last qualifying event.  

The spots will be filled by the Event Engagement Manager after an event has been uploaded and the results have been verified.  If you have questions about the State Championship qualification process, please contact your Event Engagement Manager.

Qualifying to this Event:

There are three ways for teams to qualify to Championship events: 

  • Qualifying Award: Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking: If the Championship event in the team’s region is not filled to capacity through qualifying awards, teams may qualify through the World Skills Standings sorted for the Event Region and by grade level. Teams invited through Robot Skills Challenge Rankings are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the region have been posted. Scores earned after this date will not be used to qualify teams to their Championship. 
  • Waitlist: If there is remaining capacity due to teams not accepting the invite after the Robot Skills Rankings invites have been issued, the capacity will either be lowered, and the event will be closed, or teams will be invited from the waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.

Grade Level: Middle School

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes
