General Info

Join us for the VAIC-U Championship brought to you by the REC Foundation! This event will be open to VAIC-U teams from all over the world to participate. This event will be merged with the VAIC-HS event to created a blended VEX AI Competition Championship.

These events will occur in person at IFI’s headquarters in Greenville Texas. There teams will compete in an in-person tournament. Teams will also have the opportunity to submit their notebooks and complete judged interviews for awards. 

Teams may sign up on a first-come, first served basis, and will have 2 weeks to finalize payment from the date of registration. If events are full, teams are encouraged to add themselves to the waitlist, and if spots open up, teams may be invited from that list.

If an organization has both a VEX U and a VEX AI team, they may register for both events since they are different programs. Both the AI and VEX U events will be occurring simultaneously.
