lets see, in 5 years, ive been to 5 regionals, 3 invitationals, 4 states, and 2 nats.
i dont know exact numbers, but i'd say:
20 golds
1 silver
10 bronze
1 4th place
4 5th place
so thats about 36 (my regionals and states give medals for 4th and 5th too)
2009 events:
Fossils: 1st @ reg. 3rd @ states (stupid dinosaurs...) 5th @ nats.
Dynamic: 1st @ reg. 19thish @ states, 18th @ nats
Herpetology (NOT the study of herpes): NA
Enviro Chem: 39th @ states =(
Cell Bio: 9th @ reg. 18th @ nats
Remote: 6th @ states 3rd @ Nats
Ecology: 5th @ Nats

in tx, we get medals for top 3 places at most regionals (some do top 4), and top 4 places at state, and invitationals usually do the top 3, but they vary from place to place

I believe in my state the top 3 teams only get a trophy. A team trophy, not an individual one. I would think that the individual members would get medals but i didnt see them being given out at the award ceremony. My team was really close to getting third place. If we scored 8 more points then we would have had 3rd place instead of 6th place.

We do Top 5 at state, actually, and Top 3 at Regionals. Then again, Indiana as a whole has an abnormally large number of teams.

I think it's only top 3 at regionals, and Indiana's absolutely nothing in amount teams when compared to CA, NY, PA, MI, and OH. At least we're getting more competitive...or maybe that was just the top 2 teams from IN last year.

In div. C for 3 years, I've gotten 21 medals (2 invites, 9 regionals, 7 state, 3 nationals)..18 of them are from the last 2 years. I've gotten more medals from nats (2 years) than I have from invites (2 years) which I find somewhat funny. So Riley is apparentally an incredibly competitive invitational.

You're also Jon Gold. That's an important advantage.

let's just say i belong to a state with one of the smallest number of science Olympiad teams, with the same teams winning year after year after year(not my team, however i hope this tradition will be stopped).

ohh. same in my state. we only have around 16-18 teams register each year in div B. The same team wins states every year by a lot of points and then goes to nationals and always gets in the top 10 [except for this year]

well, the winner in our state usually doesn't do too well at nationals(at least in recent years) they're usually in the high 30's and low 40's rank. however, most teams from our state have very few student population(thus less people really interested in SO), so there isn't any big challenges to them at state except(hopefully) my team.
