Official FLL Score Sheet           TechBrick FLL Score Sheet

Qualifying tournaments may use this or their own score sheet.  The refs do not score points, just missions, the math will be done at the scoring table (by spreadsheet).  The TechBricks sheet is a good reference for training purposes, as it does show points.
