General Info

The VRC State Championship is a one day event. Teams must qualify for the tournament by participating in a regional event by February 24th, 2018.  Teams qualify by winning awards at a local tournament or by invitation based on the highest skills scores posted in Maryland during the season.  

Maryland VRC – Middle School has been granted 4 World Championship spots:

1 Excellence Award Winner
3 Tournament Champions
 

If a team double-qualifies for a World Championship spot, the state’s next highest ranking team from the World Skills Standings up to and including the State Championship receives the invitation. World Championship invitations from the World Skills Standings are issued by email after the results of the State Championship have been posted at robotevents.com, and will not be announced at the State Championship.

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.
