I am pleased to announce that the 27th annual Solon High School Science Olympiad Invitational will be held on January 23, 2021! Last year, our tournament hosted 72 teams representing eight states. We were also privileged to have six events run or authored by a National Event Supervisor, and an additional six events run or authored by alumni who placed in the top three nationally in their event. We always strive to offer a challenging but fair competition with experienced supervisors.
Other exciting features of our tournament include:
- Event and team awards through eighth place
- Tournament schedule which exactly mirrors that of the National Tournament
- Trial events, Scioly meetup, and special giveaways
- Affordable concessions and famous hospitality suite
- Our tournament registration will open online as normal in late August.
- All teams that register will be placed on a waiting list in the order of registration. The tournament fee will NOT be due at the time of registration.
- On or before November 1, we will make a preliminary decision in coordination with our school administration about the feasibility of holding on in-person tournament and the safe capacity of any such event. If an in-person tournament is not possible, or if the capacity would be severely limited such that many schools would be excluded from participating, we will instead pursue a virtual tournament using the national framework.
- Teams on the waiting list will then be offered slots at our tournament in the order of their registration. If your team chooses to finalize their registration at this time, our registration fee of $100/team will be due by December 15, 2020.
More information will continue to be updated on our website. Please let me know if you have any questions or are interested in attending in 2021!
