We Need Volunteers!

Teams MUST register with the New Mexico State Science Olympiad - we do not register students here at the STEM-H Center. To register a team in the New Mexico State Science Olympiad, you must complete a registration form. The registration fee entitles the member school to enter a team of up to 15 students in their respective Regional Science Olympiad competition and one copy of the current Coaches Manual. There is an additional fee for schools who wish to enter two teams at their regional competition. Pre-payment is required. School purchase orders may accompany the membership application, but the coaches manuals will not be shipped until full payment is received. Payments not received by the designated deadline will be assessed a late payment fee. PARTICIPATION IN A REGIONAL COMPETITION IS REQUIRED FOR A TEAM TO QUALIFY TO COMPETE IN THE NEW MEXICO STATE FINALS

. Qualifying teams (25 per division statewide) will advance to State, with the top State winners in each division advancing to Nationals. Team coaches are responsible for contacting their Regional Director as soon as possible for information regarding the Regional competition. New Mexico Science Olympiad State Competition restricts participation to one team per school. Some regional competitions allow more than one team per school to participate. There is an additional fee for schools who enter two teams at their regional competition.
