COVID-19: WRO Friendship Invitationals canceled

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced WRO Association and our Hosting National Organizers to cancel all WRO Friendship Invitationals in 2020.
The decision was hard, but it was made because our biggest commitment is the safety and health of our community during the COVID-19 outbreak.

WRO Friendship Invitatitonals

The WRO Friendship Invitationals are organized by our members in different countries each year.

Friendship Invitationals are events where the competing in the WRO challenges and making new international friends are equally important. Invitationals are also meant to give teams from countries in different regions in the world more opportunities to visit an international event.

We had two succesful first events in Philippines (2018) and Denmark (2019). 
And this season we even have three Invitationals! One in Asia, one in Europe and one in the Americas.
