Getting to the Championships

I know that you can get into it a few ways. Winning a regional, winning a chairman’s award, and i heard that if you haven’t gone in a really long time you get to go. Is that true? Are there any other ways to get in?

All champ chairman’s award winners
All teams that have existed since 1992, and played every year since
Last year’s champ winners
???Last year’s champ Engineering Inspiration award???
Regional winners
Regional Chairman’s winners

Then, any team can register.
Teams that did not go last year get a few weeks head start on registration

Here’s the official qualifications:
