Ohio Program Registration
The 2021-2022 Ohio Science Olympiad Registration is now open!
Since 1985, Science Olympiad has required that all students compete as members of a team, not as individuals. Schools wishing to register a team to compete in any Science Olympiad tournament (invitational, regional, state, or national) must pay to join a registered statewide program. Multiple teams from a single school may register, but no more than two teams from any school may participate in a regional tournament (space permitting). Students on the team must all be from a single membership school. Recruiting from neighboring schools, districts, counties, or states is not permitted.
Students may only compete in one division (either Division B or C, not both) at a single school. There is no exception to this requirement, regardless of what a single team or multiple teams from the same school are called. If a school has multiple teams, Science Olympiad recommends that the best team or at least the best members of the school be permitted to advance to the next level of competition. Only one team per school may advance from the regional level to the state level. No school, region, or state Science Olympiad program is allowed to alter or amend these national membership requirements.
The cost of Ohio Science Olympiad is $200 per team. The registration deadline is December 17, 2021. Teams must be registered with a state office in order to participate in any tournament (ie. Invitational, regional etc.). Official Regional Tournament assignments will be provided to team coaches during the registration process.
