State Tournament Cancellation
Indiana Science Olympiad respects Purdue University's judgment and supports the decision to cancel the tournament. While we know there will be disappointment among students, coaches, supervisors and parents after all the hard work that has been put into their season, we need to put health and safety first. We encourage teams to prepare for next year; our state board will focus on planning events and generating excitement for the upcoming season. The idea of hosting a virtual tournament has come up; however, Science Olympiad’s Commercial General Liability insurance does not cover virtual tournaments. Due to the nature of coronavirus (COVID-19) precautions on social distancing and community spread, the state tournament will not be rescheduled.
Scilympiad will be out of service for 10 minutes midnight PST Friday.
