Iowa FLL Challenge State Championships 2021 – 2022

We are excited to see teams at this year’s Iowa FIRST LEGO League Challenge Championship! This event will take place in a hybrid format with in-person and virtual options available to teams. All teams will participate in judging sessions and robot rounds to display all the hard work they have completed this season. For more information about the event, navigate to our event schedule and pit location links. You can also view this information on the Championship Event Page!

This year, in-person robot rounds will be viewable through our Iowa FLL Live Stream. Be sure to check out the action! If you are viewing the livestream on a mobile device click here!


This event is open for teams and their designated spectators only. Each team will receive wristbands for youth team members and up to two wristbands for adult coaches at check in. These wristbands allow team only access to Howe Hall for judging and robot rounds. Up to two spectators per youth team member are allowed at the event. Designated team spectators are to remain in a designated auditorium (Hoover Hall or Sukup Hall) where they can wait for the team during the event. The live streaming of the robot rounds will be visible in each auditorium. Designated team spectators should not follow the team to sessions at the event and will not be allowed to enter Howe Hall. Team Pits are designated for teams only.


After the event, our closing ceremony will take place online via livestream. The closing ceremony will broadcast a slideshow of pictures taken today at the event and award recognition for today’s teams. Join us as we celebrate the end of the official Iowa FLL Challenge season at 5:30pm!

Thank you to all teams, coaches, volunteers, family and friends for joining us today. We hope you had a great time and enjoyed seeing FLL teams from across the state compete today.
