Team Qualification

Each Regional Contest will be allowed to qualify a certain number of teams per division based on the number of teams that participate in each division. If a qualifying team is unable to attend the Championship, the opportunity to advance is awarded to the next highest scoring team in that division.

Wildcard teams are identified at the discretion of the Regional Contest Organizer. A wildcard team could be chosen by whichever team receives the People Choice Award or selected by a Judges Panel. The Regional Contest Organizer has the final say in the team(s) selected for wildcard spots.

Regional Contest Quotas:
