2021 Challenges Deadlines

Haven’t seen anyone post about this recently but deadlines are coming up in less than a week.


As per 1.11 of At Home Challenges Manual, 2021-03-04T20:00:00Z is when the submission/portal closes. This is the deadline to submit for the
-Game Design Challenge,
-INFINITE RECHARGE at Home (Judged Awards),
-FIRST Innovation Challenge presented by Qualcomm


Opt-in to Challenges

Your team has to “opt in” to the challenges you are participating in, via frcathome.org
The access code can be found on FIRST Dashboard via Lead Coach/Mentor 1 or 2 in the passwords/voucher codes area.
There, you have to generate credentials in the credentials tab before you can choose to opt into any of the challenges.

Entry Submissions via https://frcathome.firstinspires.org/

After generating credentials and opting into your selected challenges, you can then create entries on this site. Your login credentials to this site will be listed from frcathome.org, under the credentials tab.
-You are able to create an entry, save it, and edit it however you want up until the deadline. Remember to “SUBMIT AND LOCK” the entry for judging, prior to the deadline, at which time it no longer be edited.
-Make sure all your personal details are entered accurately, including contact details, or the judges may not be able to contact you about your submission.


I was really hoping that by now the instances of the word “deadline” that are in blue in our FAH game manuals would be updated to be actual links to a single document that lists all deadlines, and not just blue text.

It took us entirely too long to finally find the Deadlines section is hidden in 1.11 of the Section 1: Introduction part of the manual.


For a cutting edge stem organization, First’s web development skills leave something to be desired. :slight_smile:
