Inventor Rookie Award

Is there such a thing? And so can someone direct me to where I can find out more info about it. Our team has never submitted any Inventor files in the competition and are pondering if we would be considered a Rookie Team for Inventor.

We are registered in Tier 1. And have been going to regionals and nations for a few years now. Can we still do this? If it even exists.

Read the “Awards” section of the rulebook. I haven’t closely read it, so I don’t know the answer, but I’m going to assume it’s the same as previous years, in which case, there will not be any kind of rookie award.
