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. In 2019, Pearl City High School won Division C for the first time, taking over Iolani. Highlands Intermediate School, within recent years of their win streak at states, has started to progressively place better at nationals with 23rd, 12th, and 13th at Wright State, Colorado State, and Cornell respectively.

In 2019, Hawaii was experimenting with running the full capacity of 23 events. They ran 23 events that year, however only 20 counted and the remaining 3 did not count toward the final score and were awarded as trials.

In 2021, due to COVID-19, Hawaii will be running MiniSO for Regionals and States. Only 17 events will be official for states, with two trials: Digital Structures and AgriBio. In addition, the State tournament will be open-internet.

State Competition Results

Division B
Division C



Hawaii is an archipelago consisting of eight major islands, four of which hold Science Olympiad regional tournaments. The four that hold tournaments are Oahu, Hawaii Island, Maui, and Kauai. Each island only hosts one tournament, with the exception of Oahu. Most of these tournaments are hosted at the island's respective University of Hawaii campus, with the exception of the Windward Regional which is hosted by James B. Castle High School. Teams on Oahu can choose which regional tournament on the island they'd like to attend and are not restricted by location.

COVID-19 has caused many teams to fall out and as a result, regionals will be held inter-island. Division C has 22 teams split into 11 teams in 2 regionals. Division B has 7 teams all in 1 regional. They will all be held from 2/1-2/6.
