Kentucky Science Olympiad

State Tournament 2023
We are excited to be back! The Kentucky Science Olympiad, along with the University of Kentucky, will be hosting its annual state tournament on Saturday, April 22, 2023

Registration is now open for the 2022-2023 season. Register using the link below.

Here are the proposed schedules for the State Tournament for Division B and Division C

These decisions were made after reviewing your feedback from the Google Form and after consideration with the Regional Directors.

Next Steps
After reading through the policy below, please reply to and indicate which tournament below you plan to attend (required for Division C but encouraged for Division B). The KYSO team will update your profile in the Scilympiad site to indicate your “region” for 2023.

Qualifying for State
To participate in the Kentucky State Tournament on April 22, 2023:
• Division C teams must compete in a regional tournament. All teams that participate in a regional will qualify for state – there will be no ranking who moves on, only participation is required.
• Division B teams are not required to participate in a regional to qualify for state but are strongly encouraged.

Regional Tournaments
Based on the survey responses and resources available for each region, the following dates and locations are the qualifying tournament offerings for the 2023 KYSO season. Remember that registration with the state office is required for any of the below events and for the State Tournament.

A team may choose any one tournament to attend – regardless of their previously recognized regional placement. Choose the tournament most accessible and feasible for your teams.

*The Centre College Invitational and/or Kentuckiana Invitational will count toward State Tournament qualifying purposes. A team could attend only the Centre College Invitational and not a “Regional Tournament” and still advance to state.
