@lulloftheocean science olympiad is that complicated at your high school? lucky...at my school we just have "science contest club" which consists of about 10 students that do science olympiad, science bowl, and envirothon.
at my middle school, my 7th grade year was when the school restarted doing science olympiad after 15 years of not doing it. we placed 25th out of 42 and got 3 medals (1st in ornithology-that was me!). 8th grade, we had enough kids to have 2 teams, and at regionals the a-team placed 5th and got like 8 medals and the B-team placed 16th (even though they only got 1 medal, 6th place). we made it to states and I was the only one who medalled (4th in ornithology).
at my high school in a new district, last year we placed 43rd out of 50 and i got 3rd in forestry. no one really seems to care about science olympiad here; even though the team has been active since 1995 I don't think we've ever gotten a 1st place medal. I do really miss science olympiad being such a big clique, but then again I'm not that much into it since theres no ornithology any more
