Science Olympiad Invitational Tournaments allow Science Olympiad teams to participate in tournaments that do not impact regional or state advancement or rankings, but are often used as tryouts for team members and as preparation for teams that compete in regional, state or national tournaments. Across the country, many campuses and schools host these events to give teams a chance to perfect their devices and get a feel for the difficulty level of tests and labs.
Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament Requirements
While participation in Science Olympiad Invitational Tournaments is optional and in most cases requires a separate event fee collected by each Invitational Director, all school teams participating in a Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament must first be a registered member of the state and national Science Olympiad program, and each Invitational Director MUST sign and return a Tournament Directors form each year in order to hold an officially sanctioned Science Olympiad event. Request the password for this online form from your State Director, as they must approve your tournament. Once your form is received, your event will be posted/updated below. Only Science Olympiad tournaments where member teams compete in-person at a single location are eligible for Science Olympiad's primary insurance coverage.
Please see the Science Olympiad Copyright Statement outlining use of Science Olympiad Rules and procedures at sanctioned tournaments.
Food Safety Notice: Science Olympiad Workshop and Invitational, Regional, State and National Tournament Directors are only permitted to work with licensed food vendors when providing food for consumption during the event. This is for everyone's safety. Students, volunteers and teams may bring their own food for personal consumption.
Make your event official! Order Science Olympiad Invitational Medals and Trophies six weeks before your event to make sure they arrive on time!
