Updates

1.  Please note the date change!  After carefully considering several factors, we have decided to change the date of the Elementary VEX IQ State Championship event to Saturday, March 5th, 2022.  Similar to last year's VEX IQ state event, we will run elementary and middle school events simultaneously...two separate events, two sets of awards, all of the fun & excitement wrapped into one day!

2.  Lunch:

Concessions will be available.

Pizza Pre-Orders available here:   https://bit.ly/2022_VEXIQpizzaorder

PRE-ORDER DEADLINE:  VEX IQ Teams - Tuesday, March 1st by 5:00 pm

Please note that there is a vendor food contract with the Fairgrounds Coliseum and they do not allow outside food to be brought in.  State Event Partners have no affiliation with that contract but we ask that you please respect this rule when planning your day.  We are providing the pre-order option as a convenience for participating teams.  Once the order is placed, concessions will handle all payments and distribution of orders.
