General Info

Overview

Welcome to the Forsyth County Schools VEX IQ Pitching In Middle School October Tournament. This tournament is being held at Otwell Middle School in Cumming Georgia. We are asking that all Coaches and team members wear a mask at this event since we are combining multiple schools from around the state. We will not have in-person spectators at this event to allow for more room for teams space out. We will be live streaming the event.

We are requesting that any team that would like to be considered for the Design or Excellence Awards submit their Engineering Notebook by 5:00PM Wednesday, September 29. This will give our judges a chance to thoroughly examine all the hard work that team members put into their notebooks. Teams from inside Forsyth County can drop off notebooks at Otwell or send via county mail. Teams outside of Forsyth County need to contact Mr. Collins about scanning and submitting the notebook electronically.

If you have any questions please contact Tony Collins at tcollins@forsyth.k12.ga.us.
