Congratulations for qualifying for the Arizona AIA VRC High School State Championship being held for the second time on the Embry-Riddle Aeronutical University Campus! We are pleased to be your hosts this year for the event as well as the hosts for the VEX U Regional Tournement.  We hope that you can join us for a fun two days of competing and for a chance to win a one of  8 spots in the VEX World Championship this year!

The Arizona AIA VRC High School State Championship has been granted 7 VRC World Championship spots:

Excellence Award = 1 spot

Tournament Champions = 2 spots

Design Award = 1 spot

Robot Skills Champion = 1 spot

Tournament Finalists = 2 spots

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, 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.
