I also would like to extend my congratulations to everyone, especially to Boca Raton, Archimedean, OSS and Rivercity, as well as Boca B and OSS B for passing any other school that did not carry their name. Finally American Heritage for almost making it to Nationals in their first year competing. They were quite impressive for a new comer.
Congratulations to everyone who competed today, and a special congrats to Orlando Science and Boca Raton for spectacular finishes!

I will make sure your comments get to the right people, and together, we can continue to improve Florida Science Olympiad!
For those of you that competed for the last time today, this doesnt have to be the end of your involvement! If you will be continuing your education in Florida, I encourage you to join the Florida Science Olympiad Alumni Facebook group (link
) and/or reach out to your local Science Olympiad tournament organizers to stay involved (UF and UMiami both currently have alumni orgs)
Thank you, this was one of the best run run state finals in my memory. It is quite likely the best one. There were several compliments to events and more importantly no one whined about a poorly made test. Please convey my thanks to Alumni association as well anyone that were part of event review.
We also agreed that it's great that these two teams get to represent Florida, and that Florida is being represented by the dominant Southeast division (4/6 top overall places today) at Nationals yet again.
Congratulations again. Enjoy your region's Division C supremacy while it lasts
North region is the future though. When we move there next year it will automatically be the most dominant division B region and considering we have no seniors on our teams and getting another wave of talent in the next two years, the only question will be when RCSA High will catch up
I doubt OSS will manage top 25 but I think they can push somewhere in the range of 30th.
Considering our best finish was 40th, we'll take it. Our team is great but they are mostly 7th graders. We lack experience and maturity. They should be be really scary next year though.
