Capital High Science Olympiad Fund

We are Capital High School's Science Olympiad Team, located in Boise, Idaho. Our team of 7 girls and 8 boys (pictured above) won the 2016 Idaho Science Olympiad on April 2, 2016 qualifying us to compete at Nationals. This is the first time in school history that Capital has won the Idaho Science Olympiad. Unfortunately, we don't have the funds to pay for the trip to the University of Wisconsin- Stout where the National Science Olympiad  will be held May 20-22, 2016.

"Competing in the National Science Olympiad with my fellow Science Olympiad team members would be a dream come true," said Jessica Liu, Team Captain. "We worked so hard studying after school preparing for the Idaho Science Olympiad and when we earned 1st Place, our team was so incredibly happy. Some of us, including myself, were crying tears of joy! Representing Idaho in the National Science Olympiad would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and would mean so much to all of us, including helping prepare us for success in college, career and in life.  We would be so very grateful to anyone who donates in order to help our dream come true!"

Funds raised will help pay for travel and expenses to participate in the 2016 National Science Olympiad. This fundraising campaign is from now until May 1, 2016. Jason Gordon (Capital High Science Teacher) is Coach of the Capital High School Science Olympiad Team, as is Julie Ekhoff, Science Teacher, Treasure Valley Math & Science Center.
