2022 New Jersey Science Olympiad Update
The New Jersey Science Olympiad Steering Committee, in consultation with our tournament host partners, has decided that the 2022 New Jersey Science Olympiad will be held virtually. The competition format will be similar to 2021. No in-person tournaments will be held. No regional tournaments will be held. All teams will advance directly to the New Jersey State Championship. Competition will occur via Scilympiad.com with events scheduled over the span of three evenings, including a slate of events modified for remote competition.
This decision was made due to the uncertainty that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause regarding the availability of our hosting institutions to host our programs in 2022 and the capability of individual teams to travel to physical competitions. The committee is exploring options to expand the competition beyond what was offered in 2021 by offering some engineering events as exhibition events via video submission. The inclusion of engineering events is not guaranteed at this time and such events would be entirely optional and not count toward team result. More information about event specifics will be posted when available.
