Regional and State Competitions

IDEA will be hosting the annual regional and state competitions, some regionals will be in-person and some will be virtual this school year as we continue to provide this opportunity in the safest way possible.  Please check with your regional director (Their contact information can be found in  under 2. Regional Competition Sites) as to what format will be used in your region.  We plan to have a virtual region for schools where no filed trips, safety, or no “local” regional is available and not have to worry about traveling too far.

At this point please update/join membership in IDEA.  This will make it possible for us to contact you with updates and for your students can compete in the competitions.

Competition information can be found and will be updated as items are finalized at

*The AD and ED Team competitions are already posted on the website

*Regional registration will be due 2/1/22 and state registration due 4/1 to 4/8/2022.

We hope to “see you and your students” in this year’s competitions.  Any questions contact the following:
