Rules Clarifications/FAQs

Regional Competitions will follow the event descriptions in the current Rules Manual, and the Regional, State and National Rules Clarifications that are posted on Your Regional website. 

Some submitted requests may be routed to State and/or National Science Olympiad for clarification at that level.

Aligning with National and State Science Olympiad, questions of the following type will not be answered: those that are already posted, what materials to use, how to build a device, if a device complies to the rules, what will be covered on a test, how to coach the event, test formats or types of test questions.

For Rules Clarifications, click Request for Rules Clarification button. Questions must be directed toward the event rules. For general questions, not related to event rules, select Submit General Questions button. Answered clarifications will be posted on Your Regional website. Rules Clarifications and General Questions open [Date] and close [Date] for Division B and [Date] for Division C.
