2021 Maine State Science Olympiad Tournament Results

All our students this year are winners for working so hard through the Pandemic,
whether their team could compete or not.  This year in contrast to the usual Yoda
meme: the try is as important as the do.

2021 State Science Olympiad Tournament Medals, Trophies, Awards & Merch

All our students competing but not placing in at least one event will receive a special
bronze medal for participation during covid.   Arrangements will be made to deliver
items to school offices in middle to late May so that these can be awarded to students
before graduation and summer vacation.

Congratulations to all who could participate!

2022 Maine State Tournament Event Schedule

Planning for 2022 will still take note of concerns brought by COVID-19, however, we still will follow the clear plans based on the direction from National Science Olympiad.


If COVID-19 is completely cleared by April 2022, and schools are again participating in spring athletic events then the Traditional Science Olympiad Tournament will proceed on a Saturday early in April 2022 on a date coordinated to avoid conflicts with the Maine State Science Fair, the Maine Science Festival, and certain MPA coordinated events, one-act play competition and music events where possible.  A snow date on a following weekend is also set aside.  The "gold standard" tournament would run as usual, however caution would be kept to keep social distancing, appropriate hygiene, masking, timing, and coordination that have helped keep Maine safer.  If the pandemic returns as a force majeure, we can move back to virtual competition if necessary.
