High School Science Bowl – Applications Due 12/7

Published on: October 1, 2018

Welcome to the 28th Annual
Nevada High School
Science Bowl!

February 1-2, 2019

Registration is now open!

On behalf of the National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Field Office (NNSA/NFO), we are pleased to announce the 2019 Nevada Science Bowl for high school competition will take place February 1-2, 2019, at the National Atomic Testing Museum (NATM) and Vegas PBS. We would be honored to have your school field a team for this event.

Thirty-two teams from high schools in California, Nevada and Utah are welcome to participate in this round robin, double-elimination competition. Monetary awards are given to the first through ninth place teams for use in their school’s mathematics/science departments. Although other Science Bowl competitions will take place throughout the country, individual schools may only enter one regional competition per year.

If you are considering entering more than one team, please submit a separate registration packet for each team. The goal is to field single teams from 32 different high schools. You may register an additional team from your school, but the second team will be held until the deadline. If there are not 32 individual school teams received by the deadline, the second teams will be placed in order of the postmark date. Every effort will be made to accommodate all registered teams, but we must adhere to the 32-team limit. A team consists of one coach, an optional co-coach, four team players and one alternate.

The team that wins the Nevada Science Bowl competition will be eligible to compete in the National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C., April 25-29, 2019. All members of the winning regional team must commit to participate in the National Science Bowl or the second-place team will be asked to substitute.
