We hope you will join us this year at the first-ever Remote VEX Robotics World Championship May 17-29, 2021.

Judges are critical to the scholastic sport of competitive robotics, and we realize the commitment it takes to volunteer as a judge. This year, it will take more dedicated volunteers than ever to make our judging program a success as we have expanded the number of divisions and programs for students.

Please consider volunteering as a remote judge in April and/or May (see below dates) for the Remote VEX Robotics World Championship.
