Dear Science Olympiad Coach,
Friendship Christian School in Lebanon, TN would like to invite you to compete at the 5th annual Friendship Christian Science Olympiad Division B Invitational on Saturday, January 13th, 2018. Invitationals are a great experience and valuable opportunity for all students preparing for Science Olympiad regional and state tournaments. A “practice” competition is a great way to “compete before it counts” and it gives your building events an earlier competition deadline. Thus, they prepare earlier and are well on their way to a great regional competition. Regional tournament rules will be used where applicable.
We plan to run all 23 middle school events. At invitational tournaments, each competing TEAM agrees to run at least one event. You will be asked on the registration page to list several events your school would be willing to run, and we will assign one of them per team to you. (If you are aware of others who would be interested in running an event, please share their contact information.) You would be responsible to bring everything needed to run the event, including copies of the test, equipment, stopwatches, etc… You will also need to submit an electronic copy of any tests/score sheets/answer key by January 10th, as we will provide each team with a copy of the tests on a flash drive or web page at the conclusion of the awards ceremony.
We will be awarding team trophies (limit one per school), as well as gold, silver, and bronze medals, then ribbons for additional high finishers in each event. We will determine the number given based on the number of teams participating.
The registration fee per team is $80 to offset the costs of running the competition and the awards. Each school may bring up to three teams, and if room allows, we would consider additional. Please register by the December 1 deadline so that all necessary information can be distributed before Christmas break. The plan is to send out the schedule the first week of December, but note that it will closely model the national tournament schedule. Feel free to email and let us know that you wish to compete, but your spot can only be confirmed when payment is received. Each competing team must also be registered with your state’s Science Olympiad program.
We look forward to having you on our campus for the 2018 Friendship Christian Science Olympiad Invitational.
