Below is guidance on project sharing and the team information sheet.  


Project Sharing

Project sharing is required for Champion and Projects Awards. The goal is to share your project with multiple individuals or groups who may benefit. Sending an email to the VA-DC FIRST LEGO League list-serve about your team’s project or two your team’s website does NOT qualify as sharing.


Information Sheet

The team should take 1 copy of the information sheet into each judging room – Core Values, Project and Robot Design.   Take a minimum of 4 printed copies to tournament. Team Information sheets are used to help judges remember teams. 


Example Information Sheet

View my blog post for example information sheets. 

Creating a Team Information Sheet
Download the template at .
Open in Adobe Acrobat.  DO NOT edit in the browser, it will not let you insert an image.
Edit the template
Print 4 copies for the tournament.  You will need one for each judging room and one for registration.
Troubleshooting – Can’t add a picture

Open the pdf file in Adobe Acrobat, not your browser, and click the picture area.  This will allow you to select a picture.


Tournament Photo Booths (Optional)

This year we are experimenting with a team photo booth concept at a few tournaments. At the tournament, a team picture with the team holding the robot and supplemental judging material will be taken. This is to help the judges identify teams during deliberation.  If your tournament is participating, the tournaments judge advisor will notify the team. This is a small scale experiment.
