Virginia State Championship – Ringmaster M.S. Division
February 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm$225
The VEX IQ Middle School Virginia State Championship is a one day event in Doswell, VA. Teams must qualify for the tournament by participating in a regional event by February 4th, 2018. Teams qualify by winning awards at a local tournament or by invitation based on the highest skills scores posted in Virginia during the season.
Virginia VEX IQ – Middle School has been granted 5 World Championship spots:
1 Excellence Award Winner
2 Teamwork Champions
1 Design Award Winner
1 STEM Research Project
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.
The following is an example schedule, but changes will be made. Expect a finalized schedule closer to the end of January. A change is that VEX IQ and VRC will finish at the same time on Saturday.
