Science Olympiad Volunteers
Montana Science Olympiad State Tournament · Friday, April 19th, 2024
The Montana Science Olympiad State Tournament hosts over 900 middle and high school
students from over 70 schools across Montana competing in 29 Science Olympiad events.
This enormous undertaking would not be possible without the dedication of an army
of dedicated volunteers.
Volunteers contribute an array of tasks from helping to supervise and score science, engineering and technology events, to running sandwiches to Event Supervisors and a roll of duct tape to a classroom. We need all of you!
Registration opens in January, 2024. Volunteers earn ChampChange and receive Science Olympiad schwag and a free lunch!
In keeping with MSU Guidelines for University Programs for children, volunteers are screened through a background check. Please read the .

- Present a short talk about your research, club or department
- Teach a hands-on mini-class that relates to your field
- Involve your students, lab group or departmental colleagues
