Dozens of high-tech robotics competed for top honors at the Central Valley robotics competition. The fourth annual event wrapped up on Sunday at Madera South High School.

Teams from across California, Hawaii and Arizona brought their own creations to the event in hopes of moving on to the world championship. This year's theme was "Recycle Rush" in which students had six weeks to design, build and program a prototype that helps with recycling.

"This competition basically was created to inspire kids to go into math, science, engineering and technology. It's really to ignite the imagination; it's a sport of the mind," Central Valley regional chairman Alan Hollman said.

Three teams will move on to the world championship in St. Louis next month, including Madera High School. Buchanan High School also won an excellence in engineering award.
