I like to do buzzer competitions, so I do a lot of them. I do Science Bowl, History Bee (JV and Middle School), Academic Bee, Science Bee,
and Geography Olympiad. I also play the violin. And I do Science Olympiad too.
GEOGRAPHY OLYMPIAD SOUNDS AWESOME I WOULD LOVE THAT SO MUCH

It's okay. There's only an exam at states and regionals, but at nationals there are buzzer rounds. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at geography, and in the buzzer rounds, there are people who are so good that they max out almost immediately. So I never make it very far at nationals for geography.

My main ECs were Chemistry Olympiad and Science Olympiad (swapped out for Science Bowl in senior year). I also did art, but that was a fairly small commitment. In freshman year I was very gungho NJROTC but I didn't get any leadership positions and generally didn't vibe with some of the people so I quit after sophomore year. I tried doing robotics among other things, but nothing else really interested me very much at all.

You can definitely balance Science Olympiad with other things, especially if your school culture doesn't have a lot of clubs which forbid dual participation in SciOly (eg: at my school, you generally can't do robotics and SciOly). A lot of SciOly people did FBLA and went to Nats for that. A good chunk of us went hardcore in other Olympiads as well. Yet others did newspaper and yearbook, though they were basically told to quit SciOly if they wanted to be chief for either of those ECs.

It gets even easier if your events have overlap with other things. For instance, I did Chem Lab, and I never studied directly for it because everything was covered in ChemOly prep. I can also see overlap with BiOly and bio events, or DP Oceanography and Ocean Bowl.

Wasn't this already a thread? In fact, my answer here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11380&hilit=clubs#p325521. Even Unome's, East's AND Lumo's (for those I missed: know that I started cross-checking further but decided to just up and give up, apologies) responses weren't all that different;P.

...but even more fun if you want to see some history: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2767&p=217315&hilit=clubs#p217315

oh hey, i did FPS in like 5th and 6th grade, thinking about rejoining (went to IC for scenario writing in 6th grade lmao)! i'm also currently in speech & debate (program oral interp, anyone?) and penohio, but penohio is now dead/bankrupt/sued by their parent company (it's a really long complicated story) and there will apparently be a pilot program for a new competitive writing program next year! i play tennis, too, and trombone during marching season but that doesn't overlap with scioly season.
