The BIG question is: If you give a state a 3rd team slot, which state are you going to take it away from. There are only soooo many slots available and that number is maxed out, unless you have an extra quarter mil or so in your pocket that you don't need!

I'm afraid there are only a limited number of slots. If you give one state another slot you MUST take one away from another state.

What does government bail-outs have to do with this. The National Science Olympiad tournment is privately funded. They get NOTHING in the way of government funding!

BECAUSE 50 TEAMS IS ENOUGH AND IT WOULDN'T BE FAIR TO GIVE 1 STATE 3 SLOTS AND NOT THE OTHER 49!

The number of teams a venue can support is limited by available facilities, housing, personnel, funding, time constraints and possibly many other reasons. ALL of these problems must be solved BEFORE they could consider adding slots.

Science Olympiad is a private corporation founded for the specific purpose of increasing interest in science & science education. They are not part of the school system or any other government entity. Why would anyone think they would be government funded?

youd been suggesting it by basically only making arguments for ohio, and pensylvainia.
When a bunch of other states could make an argument too--NY, California etc.

most are, but SO is funded through a part of the budget that isn't state money, the rules for spending state given money are very specific.
