Hello Kaitlin , We missed last year competition due to covid and eager to restart our FLL journey again this year. We are beginning our team formation and also planning our team workshops schedule . I am looking for some guidance on the current season for FLL and Junior FLL on 1. tentative dates for VA regional rounds competitions and 2. would it be remote or in person ? . 3. When would be able to order the Competition Mats and sets for current season. 4. What is the age limit for FLL and Junior FLL (rules) and max / min no. of team members in each team?.5. Tentative dates, when we would be able to register to competitions / choose competition dates? Thanks in advance.

The two teams that received the nomination spots will find out onApril 1st. VA-DC FLL has until April 7th to send those names to FIRST, which we plan to send on April 1st once the teams have been notified. The teams will have untilApril 21st to complete their project write-up that needs to be submitted to FIRST. So the teams would have three weeks to work on that! As FIRST has extended the season, there have been several deadlines and due dates that have shifted! Apologies for the mix up. It has been corrected on theVA-DC FLL Global Innovation Awards page.

I'm a little concerned to see that the 2200 word written GIA submission is due a week after the teams selected will be notified (April 1st to April 7th). That's a pretty tight turnaround, especially for younger team members who don't exactly crank out text. My kids will want to apply anyway, but that's going to make the first week of April into the Week of Doom if they're lucky enough to get a nomination. I see on FIRST's FAQ page (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.firstinspires.org_sites_default_files_uploads_resource-5Flibrary_fll_global-2Dinnovation_fll-2Dgia-2Dfaq.pdf&d=DwIFaQ&c=eLbWYnpnzycBCgmb7vCI4uqNEB9RSjOdn_5nBEmmeq0&r=k6Oa5GxfBPFMgGjb2r5QIoEOeBZs9xbNIpA0kLw_kFQ&m=NtD76QIph8GANGn0lmO9LnUKIGzJ5rEHDZp1i9f_-To&s=JvGGO00F3oI6xz9ZjtREF9p81mRQmwviZZg_hDgZQDg&e= ) that materials are due to FIRST on April 21st. If that's the correct deadline, that'd be much kinder to whichever two awesome teams get the opportunity!
