Tournament directors are university officials, community members, dedicated volunteers, and Science Olympiad alumni who host, manage, and oversee regional tournaments.
Ohio Science Olympiad tournament directors make every effort to provide a challenging and engaging experience for all participants. This page provides resources to better assist with tournament planning, event practices, and consistent execution throughout the state. 2023 Logistics are not yet available; the 2022 form is available below as an example.
Tournament directors have a responsibility to ensure to the best of their ability that each participating team at any Invitational, Regional or State Tournament is a certified member of the Science Olympiad national program. If multiple teams (JV/Alternate/etc.) from the same school are allowed at your Invitational or Regional, each team must be registered with a state office
