Washington State Science Olympiad has grown more competitive over the years, with a number of new schools and teams each season. It has grown from having only three regional tournaments to having five regional tournaments. The three regions of Washington for C division are the Northwest Region (Seattle Central College and Highline College), the Eastern Region (Spokane Falls Community College), and the Southwest Region (Lower Columbia College). There is one additional region for B division, the South Central Region (Yakima Valley Community College).

In recent years, the state tournament has been held at either Clark College or Eastern Washington University (switching from Eastern Washington to Western Washington each year). However, the 2015 state tournament was held at Highline College on April 18, 2015, the first time in many years the state tournament had been held in the Northwest Region.
