General Info

Welcome to the 2024 VEX North Carolina Elementary VEX IQ State Championships

The 2024 North Carolina ES VEX IQ State Championship is a one day event in Concord, NC.  Teams must qualify for the tournament by participating in a regional event by February 3rd.   Teams qualify by winning awards at a local tournament or by invitation based on the highest skills scores posted in North Carolina during the season.

The team coach or teacher listed as the main contact in RobotEvents will be responsible for registering for the State Championship event promptly. They will have a two week window to register to KEEP YOUR STATE SPOT after a qualifying event before their invitation to the North Carolina VEX IQ State Championship is lost.

Teams are responsible to have registration fees paid in full three weeks prior to the state championship, unless of course your event you win a state spot is the the final two weeks before states, in which you must be prepared to pay immediately following that event.  Payments are to be made through Robotevents.

*Qualifying events closer to the State Championship only have 2 week to register for states. 

**The State qualifying Skills score cut off will be two weeks prior to the state championship.  The number of teams coming by qualifying from the skills list is based on open spots after all events within the state of North Carolina have finished.  Teams that qualify from skills list will have a short time to register and pay for the state championship, please plan accordingly. 

Teams that move on to the World Championship Event in Dallas, Texas  will be responsible for registering for the World Championship event promptly as they will only have two weeks to register AND pay before their invitation to Worlds is lost! Plan accordingly and plan to win. The teams coach who is officially listed in robotevents as the primary contact receives all team emails, so read the email titles and content carefully.

If a team double-qualifies for a World Championship spot, the state’s next highest ranked team from the Skills Standings at the State Championships receives the invitation.

World Championship qualifying awards and invitations are issued to teams whether or not the teams have expressed an intention to attend the event. Unaccepted World Championship invitations are not offered or transferred to other teams.
