BennyTheJett is a Division C competitor from 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.

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.
- 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.
- 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, because the competitions were online. He very much appreciates feedback on his tests, and is always looking to improve as a writer.

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.
Get help people. Don't go how X did.
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.
