2019 CAL MARITIME RESULTS

Hi Cal Maritime ROVers:
​  
Thank you all for such a great event on Saturday.  It was great to see everyone's inventiveness and hard work.  I also want to thank all the judges and volunteers that helped make the day run so smoothly.  Attached are the final scores for the day and the awards presented.  
​   
In the next week or so, I will be forwarding all the score sheets/ rubrics to you so you can check them out.  
​  
​Thank you again.

Registering Students for the Cal Maritime Competition

Hi Cal Maritime ROVers: 
​  
It is very important that you have your students register for your team through ACTIVE.  Students who do not get registered through ACTIVE cannot participate on competition day. 
​  
How register students through ACTIVE: 
​  
When you created your team, you should have had access to an invitation email you can send out to additional mentors and student team members (or parents).  Through that link, students and additional mentors should be able to register for your team.
