RE: Invite to compete in LRT in addition to LRS- eligible for judged awards?

Hi!

Sorry for all of the Q&A questions. We recently got a time sensitive invite to compete in LRT in addition to LRS, which we are already registered for. If our team opts to do both, are they eligible for all aspects of the competition or are they eligible for only performance based awards? Will they do one more LRT interview if they are eligible (via notebook ranking) or would they just use their existing LRS interview? I just wanted to be able to fully explain the scope of the special circumstances to my students since this information isn't readily available for us. Thank you so much for your help in clarifying for us! We appreciate all that you do to support the students, especially in such a challenging season.

Answered by Competition Judging Committee

Teams are not eligible for judged awards in more than one 2021 VEX Robotics World Championship event. In your case, your team was registered for LRS and the invitation to additionally register for LRT came some time later, so your team is eligible only for judged awards in the LRS event.
