One of the unique aspects of the Mississippi BEST competition is that it can involve many areas of the school in the preparation for competition day…it’s not just limited to those students who design, build, and operate your robot.

Volunteers for competition days
We always need volunteers to help judge the competition pieces as well as referee the game. Please sign up via the volunteer link for shifts and event pieces that you feel are within your realm of expertise – or we can train you as well.
