We at MATE HQ are opening registration for the World Championship Qualifier with the following caveat: we may need to cancel because of 1) COVID or 2) lack of team participation to make running the event viable.

Regional contests will take across the U.S. and around the world. 

Teams must compete at the nearest regional competition or complete a demonstration of their vehicle to earn the opportunity to move on to the international competition.  Click here to find information about the regional contest nearest you.  Not sure which regional your team would participate in?  Contact Jill Zande
