The Excellence Award is the highest award presented in the VEX IQ Challenge. The recipient of this award is the team that best exemplifies overall excellence in creating a well-rounded VEX IQ program. This team excels in many areas and is a shining example of dedication, devotion, hard work and teamwork. As a strong contender in numerous award categories, this team deserves to be recognized for building a quality robot, submitting a well-documented engineering notebook, and demonstrating that their team is committed to excellence in everything that they do.
Teams are eligible for the Excellence Award based upon the following criteria:
Teamwork Challenge Qualification Round Ranking
Robot Skills Challenge Ranking
Well-Documented Engineering Notebook
Judged performance in all other award categories at the event
The Design Award is presented to a team that uses the Engineering Notebook to demonstrate an organized
and effective approach to the robot design process, project and time management skills, and team
organization. The winning team will be able to describe how they implemented an efficient and effective
design process to accomplish their project goals.
One of the primary missions of the VEX IQ Challenge is to help students acquire real-world life skills that will
benefit them in their academic and professional future. The Engineering Notebook is a way for teams to
document their learning experiences and demonstrate a better understanding of the engineering design
process. It also serves as a historical guide of lessons learned and best practices.
The Engineering Notebook and the discussion with judges will demonstrate the teams ability to produce a student-built robot with minimal adult assistance.
1. The submitted Engineering Notebook is a clear, complete document of the teams robot design process
2. Team is able to explain the robot design and strategy that was used during the season
3. Team demonstrates personnel, time, and resource management throughout the season
4. Students explain the ways adults provided guidance during the season, while still ensuring that the students designed, programmed, and built the robot
The Judges Award is presented to a team that the judges decide is deserving of special recognition. Judges consider a number of possible criteria for this award: exemplary effort and perseverance at the event and/or team accomplishments throughout the season that may not fall under existing award categories, but are nonetheless deserving of special recognition.
