We are happy to announce that South American Championship will be held in the city of Poá-São Paulo, Brazil on December 15-16!

Applications were received from Poá-SP and for an idea to hold the championship across multiple cities in South America. Both described the details for hosting the competition in their own unique ways and had a lot of thought put into them. In the end, Poá-São Paulo was chosen as the host city.

Both applications can be found here.

Thank you to those who put together both applications for their time and effort in planning for this competition! It is exciting to see enthusiasm for our larger competitions from those who take the time to apply to host them and their planning is appreciated.

We look forward to another South American Championship in December and hope you can join us!
