Qualifying for State - Teams qualify for the Indiana VEX Robotics State Championship by winning a State qualifying award at a local competition. Visit the event you are registered for on RobotEvents.com and view the Awards tab to learn which awards qualify your team for the Indiana VEX Robotics State Championship.
Team Cost - The cost for the event is $200 per team, which is consistent with other large state championship registration costs around the country. Even so, we understand that cost may still prove to be a burden to some teams. Because we do not want event fees to be a barrier for any team, we are offering a limited amount of Event Registration Grants. If your team has already exhausted all efforts in raising funds and is still coming up short for the Indiana State Robotics Championship Team Registration, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
