March 4, 2016 - UCF Residential Summer Program

Feb 18, 2016 - Discovery Youth Challenge

Hello State Directors & Friends:

For the eighth year, Science Olympiad’s partner, Discovery Education, would like to invite your Division B team members to submit science-related videos in the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge (YSC). The top award is $25,000, plus trips and other cool benefits, like a special prize pack for any Science Olympiad finalists. In past years, Science Olympiad has qualified more than 50 semifinalists and finalists in the YSC (finalists each won $1,000, trips and prizes). The 2015 champ, Hannah Herbst from Florida, is a Science Olympiad team member! Topics are wide-ranging and align with preparation for many Science Olympiad Division B events; the contest deadline is April 20, 2016.

Please forward this email plus attachments to all Division B coaches in your state and post the link and info on your State Science Olympiad website - attached are 1) a letter describing the contest 2) a contest overview and 3) a nominating certificate to give to students (anyone in Grades 5-8 can enter but it's a nice motivator!) 4) logo. You can find the same information posted here:

If you have any questions, please call. This is a great opportunity for Science Olympiad students, and we hope you will take advantage!

Thank you,

Jenny
