Chalker, can I choose the distance for MTV at Nationals this year?

Said everyone in Science Olympiad ever.
"Can PA have infinite bids so the teams that didn't make States can go too?"
Can NSO just have everyone go to nats so it's fair for all teams but simultaneously disregards the whole point and spirit of Science Olympiad?
I thought the point was learning
Good luck finding a uni that'll host all us though

A quote from the Mission section of the SOINC website (btw sorry if i'm not allowed to quote them i'm not sure but here it is anyway just remove it if it's copyright) "Our mission is to host exciting competitive tournaments..." it does say a lot about promoting science but what's the point if there's no competition.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
I'm planning to learn stuff about oceanography, fossils, and more water, yay for the third time!

Hence the reason why states only get a certain amount of bids to nats.

Point acknoweldged..... but Chalker, Texas, with 3 nats level teams, needs 2 bids. To let it go without would be defeating the spirit of SciOly.

chalker, can Electric Vehicle be an event before or during the year of 2023, so I can do what would probably be my favorite event before I graduate?

Also please please, Robot Arm will come back right?

SoCal C has 3, if not more, "nats level" teams. Don't they need two bids too? I agree that it was unfair that a bid was taken from Texas, but your arguments are weak. I mean, what's the real definition of "nats level"? Don't plenty of states have "nats level" teams that don't get to go to nats? And how exactly would that defeat the spirit of SciOly? The whole point of Science Olympiad is to encourage STEM in middle and high schools through competition. Texas teams can still have both of those things without going to nats.
