The state of Kansas has been participating in Science Olympiad for the past 20 years. While its champions do not always fare well at nationals, the in-state competition is tremendous, and often the state tournament can be decided by just a few points.



History

Kansas Science Olympiad began in 1996. Kansas has consistently sent two teams to the National Tournament from both divisions, and the highest placement from either division has been 7th, by Maize Middle School in the state's inaugural year.

State Specific Policies

Regional Event Winners
Kansas invites all first place medalists at regionals whose teams did not qualify for state to come and compete. They are placed separately, but are awarded separate medals if they would have placed.

Large and Small Schools
Kansas divides the teams in half based on school size into a large school division and a small school division. All teams are placed together on the score sheet, but event medals and overall trophies are given to the top three schools in each size division. At the end of the the tournament, they announce the overall top team, which goes to nationals.
