Winfield City Schools has commited to maintaining a high-quality tournament and enjoyable experience. In order to accomplish this commitment, we have take the time to develop a COVID event plan of action. We have worked with the RECF regional support manager, local health officials, and school system administrators to develop our plan of action. Everyone's safety is our first goal. We will be running two events on Saturday, October 17th. We will host an elementary school event in the morning followed by a middle school in the afternoon. We will be offering the Excellence Award, Teamwork Championship, Robot Skills, and Design Award for this event. Enginering notebooks will be accepted virtually only. Team interviews will be conducted remotely on-site the day of the event via webcam interview with our judges. Robot Skills will be submitted virtually before the event. In order to qualify for the Excellence Award, teams must submit the Engineering Notebook and Robot skills virtually before the event. Teams that fail to meet the event requirements for the Excellence Award will not be considered for the award.
