Volunteer Opportunities

Judging – In Person in Dallas, Texas

Anyone can be a Judge, and no engineering experience is necessary. You will simply be assigned to judge a non-technical aspect of the competition if you are not familiar with robotics.

This role is interactive and inspirational, as Judges get to interact with students and teams and view their work.


Every robot is unique! This role is enjoyed by detail-oriented people.

Inspectors follow a checklist to make sure that the competition robots are compliant with all the rules (adults only, and training is quick and easy).

Practice Field Official

Practice makes perfect!

As a practice field official you’ll make sure that every team has access to practice time as they prepare for their matches.


VEX Worlds is BIG, and that means getting students and their robots organized.

This is an easy role that gets you near the action where the student teams are competing, ensuring that everyone is in the right place at the right time for competition matches. This is a great family role, as parents can Queue while kids do Field Reset in the same area.
