I always heard rumors that teams have science olympiad electives, where they have a whole class period to sit and work with their team. Is this true?
Ah, the eternal rumor
My coach always liked to talk about how Solon had Science Olympiad classes (which I guess is a myth?)

Are most invies/regionals consistent with medal colors?
For instance, im pretty sure 1st 2nd and 3rd are always blue, red and white

However, I've recieved a green 5th place medal and also a yellow 5th place medal. Is there a color code that most people stick with?
1-3 should always be the same, but I’ve seen variation from 4-8. I usually see;
1. Blue
2. Red
3. White
4. Yellow
5. Green
6-8. Usually varies a lot
From what I've seen, 6th is usually purple, but then there are also the somewhat weird States ribbons.

I know of some teams with SciOly as a class, but generally you need the students to be dedicated to SciOly anyway to convince them to take it as a class.
Troy SciOly 2019 - now
Suzanne SciOly 2016 - 2019
Events this season: Water Quality, Forensics, Ornithology, (some experience in DP)

The team may be gone, but the program lives on...

If I recall correctly, our 6th place ribbons are pink. But other than that, it seems like its pretty standard. The other thing is that 1-3 medals are usually the same pairings of color and fake metal (blue + gold, red + silver, white + bronze).
