BennyTheJett is a Scioly alumni (Div. D) from Menomonie High School in Wisconsin. He has been participating in Science Olympiad since his 8th grade year, although he didn't get serious about it until his sophomore year in high school, a decision he regrets. He was exalted on the forums on April 3rd, 2020; his crowning achievement of Science Olympiad (he was re-exalted on September 7th, 2020). He also can claim to have participated in the very first online Science Olympiad meet. If you want to contact Benny, shoot him a PM. He loves meeting new people in real life and on the forums. If he doesn't respond he's usually solving a puzzle. One of his other claims to fame was that on the date 10/17/21 at 11:20pm, Benny broke Pikachu4919's soul (central time, not literally broke Pika's soul, just metaphorically).

2020 Placings

This was Benny's first year on the varsity team, so he thought it better to track all his places rather than just his medals.

Event Belleville Boyceville Medford UWRF UMich Regionals
Astronomy 8th 5th 1st 3rd 16th 1st
Dynamic Planet 1st 3rd 1st 1st 2nd 1st
Fossils 4th* 4th 5th 2nd 7th 1st
Geologic Mapping 3rd* 2nd 1st 5th 7th 1st
Water Quality 4th* 1st 3rd 1st 12th 1st


  • At Belleville invitational there were 2 divisions, big and small school. Small schools medalled out to 4th, while big schools medalled out to second. Benny actually only got 1 physical metal, but he listed his events that fell in the top 4 for consistency with other schools at said tournament.
  • Benny did Boomilever at the Wisconsin West Regional. He got 5th with a score of ~900 (he was also carried and had no clue what he was doing).
  • Benny was beat by the JV team in Geologic Mapping at the regional tournament, however JV teams do not factor into placements, only varsity teams, so Benny got the gold.

2021 Placements

This was a very difficult year for Benny. He was in his senior year, but his long time Fossils partner quit the team, meaning he would have to shoulder all the weight of that event, and ended up soloing the event for the entire season. It was also a challenge at every tournament, as because the tournaments were online, Benny often found himself competing against many of the very best teams in the nation. This did not bode well for his results. Nevertheless, it was a fun and rather eventful way to conclude his Science Olympiad career.

  • In the 2021 season, there were a lot of online competitions due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Because competitions were online there were many very talented schools competing with Benny during this season, and medals were very tough to obtain.
  • In the 2021 season, Benny actually competed in the Boyceville Invitational before the Belleville Invitational.

  • After writing for the West Regional in 2020, Benny developed a strong liking for writing tests, so he decided to apply to write tests for more tournaments across the country, and was able to Event Supervise as well, just because the competitions were online. He very much appreciates feedback on his tests, and is always looking to improve as a writer.
  • ~: Benny got a cool shirt!

Scioly Assassination 150: X

BennyTheJett was the (failed) assassinator of the 150th assassination game. He struggled to write good clues, and then "committed suicide" at the end of the game. He hopes to one day get another chance.

In a way, you know, we are all X. We truly are unknown if we do not even know ourselves.

Other Stuff BennyTheJett Does

Outside of Science Olympiad, Benny is an active member of National Honor Society, National Ocean Sciences Bowl, Wind Symphony (He'll also occasionally play with the choir), Jazz Band, and Tennis.

Post HS Plans

Benny plans to get a degree in education, and hopes to teach high school science to the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, doctors, and more. He is currently planning to go to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
