FIRST in Texas FTC State / UIL Championship

« All Events

March 24 - March 26

We are proud to announce the 2022 – 2023 FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship for the PowerPlay season. This official event will allow all regions of Texas to advance teams to this event from their Regional for the opportunity to earn advancement to the 2023 FIRST World Festival in April.

This event will host both the FTC State Championship and the FTC UIL State Championship together under one roof.

UIL State Championship:   24 1A-4A Teams // 36 5A-6A Teams // March 24 with Load-In @ 10am (UIL Trophies)

FTC State Championship:  72 teams in a dual division format // March 25 – 26 with Load-In @ 7:30am. (Official FTC Competition Awards and Inspire Banner)

As teams advance from the Regional, they will be randomly assigned into either of the two divisions.  Judging will be conducted remotely the week before for all awards. A panel of judges will be onsite for match and Gracious Professionalism review at the event as well. Teams that earn the Regional Inspire Award will automatically advance to the World Festival but are strongly encouraged to attend this event.

General Event Information:

Pits: Teams will be provided a 10’x10′ pit and 110v @ 10amp power. Teams are expected to bring their own 50′ extension cord to connect to our breakout locations. Remember to include tape to secure the cable to the floor.

Registration Fee: Teams attending UIL only will pay 500.00/ea. Teams attending just the FTC State Championship will pay 700.00/ea. Teams attending both UIL and the FTC State Championship will pay 1,000.00/ea.

After you are advanced from your Regional, you will receive an invoice from FIRST in Texas (via email to the coach). Invoices must be paid before attending. Team grants are available to help offset some or all of your advancement fee. Please reach out to for more information.
