So how would no awards ceremony work? Would you still get medals?
My guess is mailed medals, and maybe a presentation online to take place of awards?

Not that I have insider knowledge but if IN has canceled I believe IL could be next. Nothing official yet though. Be on the lookout though people! (I really hope I'm wrong)

I said it once and I'll say it again. This is very disappointing, for all people who have been affected. It'll be weird to not have Science Olympiad for the rest of the year.

I'll end this season by getting my 3 stars lol

If your district is the same district mine is ;), which has also placed a "travel ban", our principal said that the "travel ban" only applies for transportation using the districts transportation mode. Ex: using district provided school buses. So if we drive to states ourselves we should be fine.

But isn't your state tournament in your state and therefore not out of state?
