We are excited to announce that the third annual Princeton University Science Olympiad Invitational will be on Saturday, February 9th, 2019
! Registration will open at 6:30 PM EST on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018
, and will close when all slots are filled. We will continue to post further updates later in the month, and all information can be found at scioly.princeton.edu
Our registration policy this year has changed in several ways. While our team quota remains at 48, due to the amount of interest in our tournament, only the first eight 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. As before, registration is on a first-come first-serve basis. Teams to register after registration is full will receive a spot on the waitlist in chronological order. In addition, similar to last year, we are waiving the participation fee for all teams
. 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 June Ho Park
(2020) and Linus Wang
(2021) will direct the 2019 tournament. William Jiao and Shirley Zhang are taking on advisory roles on the planning team.
We hope to see you all on Princeton’s beautiful campus in February! Check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/princetonscioly/
