Science Olympiad is among the largest STEM competitions in Montana, with more than 1,200 students each year participating in events covering life sciences, chemistry, engineering and other topics. Schools register as a team, with individuals or pairs of students competing in various events. Students can earn medals in events. The school with the highest number of event points wins the state championship trophy and is eligible to compete in the national tournament. Previously held in November, the Science Olympiad is now held in the spring.
