2018 Princeton University Invitational

Postby jiao_william » August 9th, 2017, 9:08 am

We are excited to announce that the second annual Princeton University Science Olympiad Invitational will be on Saturday, February 10th, 2018! Registration opens at 12:30 PM ET on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, with further updates posted later in the month. All information can be found at scioly.princeton.edu.

Our registration policy this year has changed in several ways. We have expanded the team quota from 36 to 48. As before, registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. Subsequent teams to register will receive a spot on the waitlist in chronological order. Due to the amount of interest in our tournament, only the first twelve schools to register requesting two teams will receive two slots for the tournament. Subsequent schools to register will only receive one slot for the tournament. In addition, we are waiving the participation fee for all teams this year. We believe that Science Olympiad tournaments should be financially accessible to all, and we hope that waiving the participation fee will allow teams to attend more invitational tournaments across the country. Progress is also underway for obtaining steeper hotel/lodging discounts near Princeton University’s campus.

Key features of this year’s tournament include:
- All 23 Division C national events will be run in accordance to the official event rules, and on the national tournament schedule.
- Tests will be written by experienced alumni at Princeton and all events will be reviewed and revised by our executive board for quality.
- Coaches will not be required to write tests or volunteer in any capacity.
- Tests and solutions with raw score statistics will be made available to competing teams following the tournament.

We are pleased to announce that William Jiao (2020), from West Windsor-Plainsboro HS South, and Shirley Zhang (2020), from Fayetteville-Manlius HS, will direct the 2018 tournament. David and Edison have moved to advisory roles on the planning team and will continue to guide the team in its second year.

We hope to see you all on Princeton’s beautiful campus in February! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email us at scioly@princeton.edu.

Sincerely,
Princeton University Science Olympiad
William Jiao
Princeton University Invitational 2018 Co-Director

Any users here attending? The tournament appears to be mostly northeast teams with some representation slightly west and south.
