General Info

Bell AVR Competition Championship Event - Welcome!

Students use hands-on, industry-standard tools to design, build, and compete against teams from around the US with the most advanced aerial robotics technology available today. Participation in the Bell Vertical Robotics Competition prepares students for tomorrow’s STEM workforce needs on the ground and in the sky.

The Championship this season is a 2-Day event.  Teams will be expected to be present for both days of the event.  See the Agenda for more detailed information of the event activities.

Teams will need to qualify for this event from a previous qualifying event. In order to attend the BELL AVR Championship, teams will first have to qualify from one of the Bell competitions taking place the first 3 weekends in November.  This season, there will be a $500 event registration fee for the Championship event (not included in your initial team registration).  The event registration fee must be paid before the event using an approved PO, CC, or check. Note: An 3% processing fee will be added to credit card payments.

The qualification process to this event is included in the 2023 Bell AVR Game manual that can be found on the REC Foundation Bell AVR website.

Teams can add themselves to the waitlist for this event. To waitlist your team for an event, make your way to the Waitlist tab on the right side of this page. You should see a green ADD button beside your teams name.  Click add, and your teams will be added.  If there is extra capacity to the event after the qualification process has been completed in the season according to the game manual, then teams may be invited off of the Waitlist.  This will likely take place the week prior to the event.

Lunch: More information about team lunches will be added as we get closer to the event date.

Venue Security: All event attendees will be required to pre-register due to Bell security protocols for this venue.  Directions on how to pre-register will sent directly to teams who qualify for the event.  If you are not associated with a team and would like to attend, email [email protected] for more information.



Performance Awards will include 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

Judged awards will include Best Overall Design, Exemplary Team, Judge's Choice, and Presentation Awards.
