WHAT TO BRING TO AN EVENT

 

2016 TOURNAMENT ADVANCEMENT PROCESS:

Team selection for advancement to the LA State Championship is determined by the “FIRST Champions Award Criteria”, which is an overall ranking based on team performance in all 3 judging sessions (Core Values, Project, Robot Design) plus performance on the field – see FIRST Judging FAQ.  The intent is to have 12-team qualifiers, but sometimes the numbers vary, so advancement is based on a percentage that will be determined from the number of teams we have in Louisiana after national registration is closed.  60 teams will be invited to the LA State Championship.  If your team is invited to advance, you MUST register by Nov. 21st at the online link which will be posted on this website.  After that date, open slots will be offered to teams on the waiting list.
