VOLUNTEERING: All FIRST LEGO League South Carolina events are completely ran by volunteers. Everyone from the check-in staff, the Robot Game queuers, the referees, the judges, on up to the tournament directors volunteer their time. Anybody can make a great volunteer. Volunteers do not need to be an expert in everything FIRST LEGO League. If you’re interested in lending a helping hand, head over to the Volunteering page.
The Columbia Qualifying Tournament will host TBD number of teams. Teams must be ranked in the top TBD Robot Game scores to be considered for Champion’s Award. The top TBD teams will advance based on their average ranking by the Judges in Core Values, Project and Robot Design, and must finish ranked in the top TBD (actual number, not percentage) Robot Game scores at the event.
