Our Seven Lakes Science Olympiad Team is Nationals bound!!
This year, Seven Lakes High School has earned the spot to represent Texas at the Science Olympiad National Tournament held in Ithaca, New York. After a season of hard work and setbacks, our team won first place at the Texas Science Olympiad State Tournament. This tournament is known for being extremely competitive due to the high number of competitive top teams in Texas, and we as a whole are very grateful for this opportunity.
However, we only have a few weeks until Nationals.
Because the Texas State Tournament is held so late (the lastest State tournament in the country), booking this last-minute trip will be extremely costly. Here are some estimated figures:
-With only a few weeks of notice for airline companies, plane tickets alone will be at least $1000 per student for a group flight (school policy requires us to travel on the same plane). -Other significant expenses include renting a bus on late notice to take us to and from the airport to Cornell and paying for 3 nights of dorms for 18 people.
Our team has had a rough time dealing with costly tournaments this year -- we were unable to attend our annual out-of-state tournament due to financial problems, and we hope Nationals will not turn out the same way. Despite our setbacks, we have managed to crush expectations and win the 2019 State Tournament with one of the best scores in Texas State history. We ask that you consider helping us on our trip to Nationals. Any amount will help!
Thank you for your support on behalf of the Seven Lakes High School Science Olympiad Team!
