VEX Robotics World Championship!


Volunteer Registration Now Open

All season long, event volunteers are the heart and soul of VEX competitions. This couldn't be more true at the VEX Robotics World Championship, where we bring 1,400 of the best robotics teams from around the world to compete to become World Champions! This year VEX Worlds will take place April 19-25, 2017, in Louisville, Kentucky. Join us and be part of the culminating event of the season where the energy and excitement is palpable and participating is rewarding for everyone involved.

We are excited to announce a new volunteer scheduling platform that will allow self-scheduling online (once shifts are available), making it easy to select and view volunteer shifts from your computer or mobile device.
