General Info

Congratualtions on making it to the 2024 Hawaii VRC Middle School Regional Championship!

This event will be run as a Worlds Qualifying Event, so the expectations will be the same as if you were competing at the World Championship. Teams should come prepared and ensure their robots are ready to compete.

Each team mentor will be given a list of rules for bldg 29, if your team does not follow them they will be removed from the building.

The REC Foundation Code of Conduct will be strickly enforced.

Qualifying to this Event:

There are three ways for teams to qualify to Championship events: 

  • Qualifying Award: Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking: If the Championship event in the team’s region is not filled to capacity through qualifying awards, teams may qualify through the World Skills Standings sorted for the Event Region and by grade level. Teams invited through Robot Skills Challenge Rankings are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the region have been posted. Scores earned after this date will not be used to qualify teams to their Championship. 
  • Waitlist: If there is remaining capacity due to teams not accepting the invite after the Robot Skills Rankings invites have been issued, the capacity will either be lowered, and the event will be closed, or teams will be invited from the waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.

Grade Level: Middle School

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes

Judging Format: All In-Person Judging
