Hawai'i has part of the National Science Olympiad since 2005. They made their first national tournament appearance in 2008 with Highlands Intermediate School in Division B and Farrington High School in Division C.


For the first few years, the champions from Hawaii varied from year to year and did not fare very well at nationals, but in recent years Iolani School has taken control of division C and has placed well in the finals. Highlands Intermediate School, within recent years of their win streak at states, has started to progressively place better at nationals with 23rd at Wright State.

As Hawaii does not have the capacity to run all 23 national events, the state chooses 17 events each year to run at the state competition.
