Registering a Team

SO is a school-based competition. All students must attend the same school, and the school must be the official sponsor of the team.  Public, private, and home schools are welcome; we are happy to answer any questions about team requirements. An unusual feature of SO is that you can enter more than one team from the same school; they compete as separate teams.  Download a registration form from this website or use the address below to request an electronic copy.  


What you get

We no longer send out printed rules manuals. All official rules are available for free download at the National Science Olympiad website, Resources for all events are also available on this site.



Registration for 2018 is $200. Registrations postmarked before Jan. 1, 2018 are discounted to $180. There are no further fees from SO even if you advance to nationals. SO is a very low cost way of involving your students in science. However, we do not give you kits of materials, and most events do not allow commercial kit projects.  You will need to scrounge, repurpose, or buy materials for some events.
