2021 South's BEST Participating Teams


How do teams advance to South's BEST Championship?

The number of teams from each hub that advance to South’s BEST is based on the percentage of the total number of teams at that hub. Larger hubs (e.g. 32 teams) are allowed to advance more teams than smaller hubs (e.g. 15 teams).

Top finishers (both in Robotics and in the BEST Award) from the local hub competitions advance to the Championship. Teams advance based on the following order of how they placed at their local competition:

  1. BEST Award - First Place
  2. Robotics - First Place
  3. BEST Award - Second Place
  4. Robotics - Second Place
  5. BEST Award - Third Place
  6. etc...
