To the Wisconn Valley VEX IQ Challenge in Somers, Wisconsin! This is our second year hosting an event, but the first time we are hosting a VEX IQ event! We are hopeful this event will continue to help spread the word about the awesome-ness that is VEX Robotics Competition and encourage more team growth throughout the state and especially in southeastern Wisconsin. This event is being hosted by Shoreland Lutheran High School with support and assistance from Fox Valley Competitive Robotics, Inc.
All teams need to turn in a Participant Consent Form. The form can be found here. You may bring the form to the event, or you may turn them in electronically through your RobotEvents account.

If 10 or more teams are registered at each level of a Blended event (Elementary School and Middle School) the Excellence Award must be offered at each level. The total number of state qualifying spots will increase by one.
If the STEM Research Award is not offered at the event, the total number of qualifying spots remains the same as the table above.
State Qualifying Spots are initially assigned based on the capacity of the event. After registration closes, and before the event, spots may be adjusted to reflect the number of teams registered for the event according to the table above. Qualifying Spots are assigned by the REC Foundation. The assignments are calculated based on the number of spots available for State Championship, the number and size of qualifying events in the State, and the historical double-qualification rates for the State. Questions on State Qualifying spot assignments may be directed to your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager Bill Ryno by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Event Partners are encouraged to allow all teams to participate in Finals matches. However, at large events or events that are running late, the Event Partner may choose to run finals matches that do not include all teams present.
