Science Olympiad School Volunteers
Volunteers are valuable and necessary resource that contribute directly to the success of the [Name] Science Olympiad tournaments. Participating schools are responsible for sending one adult volunteer (college student or at least 21 years old) per registered team, except for schools sending 6 teams. Schools sending 6 teams will be required to provide 7 adult volunteers. Teams with fewer than 8 students per team or experience extreme hardship may request for a waiver. "Cannot find volunteers" does not fall within the classification of extreme hardship. Waiver must be submitted by [Date]. School volunteers must be available the entire day in which their school is competing. We cannot break assignments into shifts because volunteers will be trained prior to the start of testing and it would be time consuming and disruptive if we institute shift changes.
Please note school volunteers may not sign up to assist with an event in which their child is competing. With this online volunteer signup system, Head Coaches will be able to view their school signup roster to confirm their team volunteers and verify compliance.
Parents and school volunteers are reminded of National Science Olympiad Code of Ethics and Science Olympiad Pledges:National Science Olympiad Code of Ethics
