7. Do tournament directors have the flexibility to create their own judging tools or additional requirements for teams, other than those specified in the Challenge document?

A:  Each official tournament is held to a set of “Global Standards,” designed to provide a consistent experience for teams attending official events.  Some items, including the rubrics, are required to be used by events exactly as provided by FIRST.  Other items may be modified to meet local needs.

Official tournaments will not have any new or additional requirements, such as a binder or video, other than the required items outlined in the Challenge document, Coaches’ Handbook, and FIRST website.

Each region may choose to require teams to present a Core Values Poster or Robot Design Executive Summary.  In addition, some regions may have completely optional additions that are only used for local awards.  These local, optional additions will not be taken into account by the Judges for any Core Awards.

If you have any questions about what is required at your tournament, please contact your FIRST LEGO League Partner or Tournament Director.
