The University of Wisconsin-Madison is hosting the 2011 National Science Olympiad tournament for 3,000 middle- and high-school students on teams from 120 schools across the United States. Science Olympiad is a team competition in 23 to 27 different events that cover most areas of science, and strives to elevate science education and learning to a level of enthusiasm and support that is normally reserved only for varsity sports programs.
Wisconsin Science Olympiad is a nonprofit volunteer-based organization that relies on donations of time, money and supplies to generate enthusiasm for science in elementary-, middle- and high-school students. Its success depends heavily on student and adult volunteers, who:
- Engage in community service for school requirements or resume-building
- Derive satisfaction from encouraging young people to pursue activities and careers in science, technology engineering and math
The 2011 National Science Olympiad competition at UW-Madison offers many opportunities for you to volunteer and to be a part of the excitement and interest Science Olympiad creates in the youth who participate.
We are seeking many volunteers with a variety of skills. Visit our volunteer registration page today to register and tell us how you can help make the 2011 National Science Olympiad a wonderful experience for everyone. We'll contact you in early May to let you know the specifics of what you'll be doing and where you'll be. And note that we will not share or sell your information and will use it only to communicate with you about volunteering for the 2011 National Science Olympiad tournament at UW-Madison. Thank you for your help!
