Division Lists and Judging and Inspection Schedules

Note: For division assignments, teams were sorted by the order in which they advanced from their Super-Regional or Championship event and then by their team number.  The teams were alternately placed into the two divisions.  The outcome of those two steps was evaluated and manually adjusted on a team-by-team basis to prevent all Inspire Award Winners from being in one division; all Winning Alliance Winners from being in one division; and all teams from one region being in one division.

Division assignments and Inspection and Judging Schedules are not negotiable.
