FIRST LEGO League Partners can also choose to apply to run an officially-sanctioned Invitational Open Championship. Like World Festival, these tournaments are a celebration of the season. However, each FIRST LEGO League Partner chooses how to invite teams to these events.
Invitational Open Championships are by host INVITATION ONLY due to limited capacity. Generally, invited regions will make this opportunity available to Champion’s Award winning teams from a Championship event.
