VOLUNTEERING: All South Carolina FIRST LEGO League 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 Greenville Qualifying Tournament will host 12 teams. Teams must be ranked in the top 5 Robot Game scores to be considered for Champion’s Award. The top 4 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 9 (actual number, not percentage) Robot Game scores at the event.
