Competition Updates

Chromebooks (February 27)

We have been receiving scattered reports of students having difficulty accessing the online tests when using chromebooks. If your team is using a chromebook please make sure that all software is up to date and have the students restart their computers before the tournament.

Websites (February 10)

Several coaches have asked for a list of websites that they will need to access during the regional competitions. We are updating this list as needed and it is suggested that coaches check these websites before the tournament to verify that they can be accessed in your district.
