Within one hour after the ceremony is completed the head coach may submit compelling evidence of a scoring inconsistency using this Team Ranking Inquiry Form (will be a live link at the 2018 National Tournament). If the evidence is verified, the appropriate points, medals and trophies will be awarded for that team only. Thinking that your team "did better" than scores reflect is not considered compelling evidence. Teams will not be asked to return awards or to relinquish any points. Scores for the Science Olympiad National Tournament are not official until they are posted on the soinc.org website. For more information about Science Olympiad Scoring, please visit our Policies section.
The obvious question is of course "what prompted this?", and the answer likely has to do with the second-to-last and last bolded sections. The relinquishing of points part looks unusual at first glance but appears to be consistent with past scoring corrections (e.g. 2013 with Booth and 2014 with SAA).
