The Quarterfinals are upon us and 8 spectacular teams have earned their spot to compete!
Congratulations to the advancing countries:
- United States
You have some important choices to make now, so take a moment before you make your next move.
Joining a team for the Quarterfinals opens Monday at noon.
The Four Quarterfinal Matches:
- #1 Antarctica vs #8 Canada
- #2 United States vs #7 Egypt
- #3 Hungary vs #6 Switzerland
- #4 Madagascar vs #5 Poland
As we go into the Quarterfinals you may choose any team you like to compete for. You can stick with your team from the Qualifiers or you can choose a new team if you aren’t feeling your qualifying team any longer.
Make a smart choice! If you stay on the same team from the Quarters to the Final, and your team wins, you will take home the Original Team Member badge! Pretty cool! You’ll also be required to stick with the same team until your team gets disqualified, so make sure you’re ready to commit to whichever team you choose.
**From here forward your profile country flag will no longer be an indicator of which team you belong to. You can keep your team flag or switch to another flag, but it will have no bearing on your team affiliation or team score.**
