2021 Rules | Team FAQ's


 FYLaw made the decision to conduct the 2021 competition virtually.

We did not make this decision lightly; we strongly preferred to conduct the competition in person. However, we also wanted to make a firm decision prior to release of the problem next month as a courtesy to all teams participating.  Ultimately, we determined that there is too much unpredictability at this point to hold the competition in person. We want to be completely transparent in order to give teams all of the necessary information before they embark on the hard work necessary to prepare.
