Welcome to the 27th Annual
Nevada High School
February 2-3, 2018
On behalf of the National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Field Office (NNSA/NFO), we are pleased to announce the 2018 Nevada Science Bowl for high school competition will take place February 2-3, 2018, 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 14 out-of-town and 32 total team limits. 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 26-30, 2018. 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.
To register, print out the forms below, fill them out, and obtain all signatures (including witness signatures). Please keep a copy of the registration form for your records. The Team Coach must mail all completed forms back to the Science Bowl Coordinator, Daniel Burns, by Wednesday, December 13, 2017. The return date stamp determines your participation. Submit only typed or printed original registration forms. Students who are not U.S. citizens may compete, but must provide proof of legal residency. No faxed registration forms will be accepted. You will be contacted to confirm your participation.
