General Info

Welcome to the 5th annual WV VEX U Qualifier - one of the largest VEX U events in the world! This year the WV qualifier will be run as a remote skills-only event.

Please view our virtual drivers' meeting for more information and technical requirements for participating in our remote skills-only events.

Each team will be allocated a 20-minute block to complete inspection and their 6 skills runs, and will also schedule a time to be interviewed by judges. Blocks will be scheduled after registration closes.

Teams are storngly encouraged to complete inspection on Friday to save time.

NOTE: This event will be run concurrently with WV VRC Qualifier #5. If the total number of teams registered for both events is more than we can process in one day, we will add additional time slots on Friday afternoon for some teams to complete their skills runs.

Meetings will be held via Zoom, and the join link will be sent to registered teams via email.
