Rookie highest seed award

Hi,

My rookie team is currently in a tie for first place seed at a competition with a one game advantage to the other rookie team. We are hoping to get 8 QP total in the last few matches and I am wondering if it is true that the highest seed gets an automatic ticket to nationals. Some people have been saying the rookie all star gets it so I am not sure and the pages I looked at on FIRST are a bit unclear.

Thanks.

It’s not unclear if you read http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/championship-eligibility-criteria, specifically the section on Merit Based Qualification.

It’s Rookie All-Star. Highest Rookie Seed only works to get you there if you can translate it into winning the event. (Most times that doesn’t happen.)

Ah thank you.

I was reading the descriptions of the awards not national requiments.
