FTC World ChampionshipFor main article on FTC, see FIRST Tech Challenge.
After all FTC teams have competed in state / regional championship tournaments, the winning teams move on to the FTC World Championship. The Inspire Award winning teams and the captain teams of the Winning Alliance in the regional tournaments are automatically eligible for the world championship. If there are still spots available, additional teams may be picked by a lottery system.
In 2009, the theme for the championship was Face Off!. It combined many real-world challenges, such as navigating uneven surfaces, manipulating odd-shaped objects, using sensors to determine the environment, and withstanding physical stress. The awards include World Championship Finalists, FTC Design Award, FTC Connect Award, FTC Innovate Award, FTC Motivate Award, FTC Think Award and Judges' Awards. The most notable awards are FTC Winning Alliance and FTC World Championship Inspire Award.
