The Div C State Tournament in Wisconsin offers 28 events. These include 23 of the NSO events plus 5 additional events. However, a Team may only enter only 23 of these events for Team score; Team score determines a State Champion. Additional events beyond the 23 may be audited for no team score.
Important............ Each Team must balance their chosen 23 events from the 5 Science Standard categories. Each Team will choose 4 or 5 events from each category to reach a total of 23 events. This event format has several advantages. It enables a wider variety of events to be offered in hopes of catching the interest of more students. It gives the coaches a better chance of matching their individual strengths and talents with those events. It helps to assure that one or two Teams will not dominate all events. It encourages Teams to become more diversified in their preparations. It opens the possibility for Teams to audit events and therefore involve more students. And, certainly, it definitely adds a tremendous amount of coaching strategy. By requiring Teams to balance their choices within the categories they will more adequately satisfy the National Science Standards.
Wisconsin Science Olympiad Div C State Competition does have a system where events beyond the chosen 23 can be audited. The Audit Events do permit additional students beyond the 15 to participate ( including seniors ) and compete at the State Competition. Auditing an event gives a Team a chance to not only involve more students, it gives them a chance to gain knowledge about the 5 events they have not chosen for Team score. This experience is invaluable as the Teams prepare to advance to National Tournament.
