The Oak Valley Middle School Science Olympiad team won 1st place at prestigious Southern California State Competition on April 8th at Caltech. For the first time in over 20 years, a San Diego school will represent all of Southern California at the Science Olympiad National Tournament on May 19-20, 2017!

The trip will cost approximately $25,000 to send 15 team members, 4 alternates, 2 coaches, and all of the necessary scientific equipment and supplies to Nationals at Wright State University in Ohio.

OVMS Science Olympiad is run 100% by volunteers, who logged over 4,500 hours this past year to support our students. All donations raised will be used to directly offset costs incurred by National Team members and the OVMS Science Olympiad program.

Please support the future of science and technology in San Diego by helping the OVMS National Team come home with a 1st place trophy!

Thank you to the Oak Valley Falcon Foundation , a 501(c)(3), for supporting Science Olympiad and helping us raise the necessary funds. Go OVMS!
