Regional Showcase Information

While we will still be having two NCOM tournaments, this year’s regional level competitions will be presented as more of a “showcase” than a tournament. As usual, teams will submit their Long Term solutions and paperwork, compete in Spontaneous, and receive scores from experienced judges. They will also receive their raw long term and spontaneous scores as well as sticky notes from the judges and penalties if applicable. However, regional competitions will not have an awards ceremony as usual.

All teams this year will advance to the state tournament in April to compete for trophies/medals and the opportunity to advance to the 2021 Virtual World Finals.

The regional showcase format for this year is organized so that all teams competing virtually for the first time may present their solutions and skills risk-free, and have the opportunity to get feedback from judges before the competitive state-level tournament!
