Exhibit Booth Space at the Virginia VEX State Championship

Virginia VEX State Championship!

Exhibit Space : VEX Robotics State Championship

The Virginia VEX State Championship is offering booth space to Virginia colleges and universities. The date is Feb. 22, 2014, and the event will be held at the Exhibition Hall at Meadow Event Park (state fairgrounds). 120 robotics teams from across that state will compete for spots at the VEX World Championship in Anaheim, CA, in April, as well as the title of State Champion.
All school boards across Virginia, including the VA Board of Education, and current VA politicians will be invited to attend. Our intent is to showcase the importance of robotics in education. VEX Robotics has programs for students from age 8 all the way through college: VEX IQ (ages 8-14), VEX MS/HS (ages 11-18), and VEXU (college level). The VA State Championship will host separate, concurrent competitions for VEX IQ, MS VEX, and HS VEX. This is a great opportunity to generate interest in your college/university! Many of the kids involved in robotics end up at engineering schools.

About the booths: They do not have to be manned. Each booth will be a 6' table with 1 or 2 chairs,
depending on your needs. Tables may be covered by a tablecloth or banner of your choosing, or organizers will cover it. Display boards are encouraged. Tables are being offered for $25, which includes 2 chairs, a cover if needed, and a boxed lunch with bottled water. Should your school host or sponsor a competition robotics team in ANY program, there is no charge for the table; lunch will still be $10 per person. (You will be asked for the robotics program and team number when you register.)

Times: Teams will arrive at 8:00 AM, the opening ceremony will be at 10:00 AM, and the day will conclude with an awards ceremony at 5:30 PM. Booths should be open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (when finals begin). Organizers will be setting up the event the day before, from noon to 6:00 PM, and coming in on Saturday at 7:00 AM. Booths can be set up any time that we are in the building.

How to register: Click here. Space is limited to 8 tables, so if you are interested, register as soon as possible! Deadline for registration is January 15, 2014. POs should be made out to NVCC and sent via email to An invoice for payment will be sent once the PO is received.
