We regret to inform you that the 2019-2020 Arkansas Science Olympiad State Tournament has been cancelled due to concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The Science Olympiad National Executive Board has strongly recommended that all remaining Division B and Division C tournaments be cancelled nationwide. Many states have already cancelled their tournaments already. The Executive Board has cancelled the Science Olympiad National Tournament scheduled for May 15-16, 2020. Our primary concern is the health and well-being of the students, parents, teachers, coaches, event personnel, and other volunteers. We know that students will be disappointed and have worked very hard throughout the year preparing for the state tournament. However safety and health issue must come first. We look forward to a new season and will focus on making next year as exciting as always.
