Judging Format

In person interviews will only occur for the Finals Tournament. 

 Notebooks must be submitted digitally by midnight, Friday, January 27, 2023.  Teams must submit a link to their notebook. This is the only way that notebooks will be accepted.  Engineering notebooks will be submitted digitally for evaluation  via a link found within the "My Account" panel of the team contact on RobotEvents.

For example, a notebook can be photographed or scanned in, put into a google doc, or on a website, and then the link would be recorded for each team on the sponsor's account page.

Notebooks are not required but make a team eligible for certain awards if well done.

There will be no judging during the scrimmage league, but there will be interviews and judging of Notebooks at the Finale in February. Keep your team's notebook updated during the season, to be well prepared for the Finale.
