In this paper we describe a novel methodology for holding educational robot competitions that has been developed within the RoboCup@Home Educational initiative. The methodology is based on two main elements: (1) a workshop + competition format where teaching material is interwoven with competitive tasks; (2) a team-centered approach, where rules and teaching material are tailored to participant teams to maximize the educational experience for students. The results and lessons learned after more than five years of organizing these competitions are also discussed in this paper.
