Welcome to the Battle of the States hosted by Michigan Science Olympiad! This is a virtual and asynchronous tournament open to teams in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
This tournament will run select events across multiple weeks in January and February. Each event will be open for four weekdays so your team can choose the time that best works for you to either take the timed test or make the required submissions. The currently scheduled events are listed in the table below.
We will award medals to the top teams in each event, but the twist is, we will not be ranking teams overall - You will be competing for your state! After each event, the top three teams from each state will have their scores combined to see which state comes out on top.
Registration is only $5 for admission to all the events for your team. Feel free to participate in as many or as few events as your team would like, since we will not be ranking teams overall.
Additionally, feel free to join in the fun even if you miss the early events - we will leave registration open for the duration of the tournament.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.

- Spartan Science Olympiad Club
