General Info

The Newton County School System is excited to host this VEX IQ tournament.  Students and attendees are sure to have a fun-filled day of robotics competition and we look forward to seeing all of the teams shine!  Protocols will be in place to ensure a safe and healthy event.  Additional information will be sent prior to the event day, but teams should plan on attendance reductions (for teams and spectators), required masks, and social distancing.
