Congratulations N-CHS Science Olympiad Team!

On Saturday, March 10th, 2018 the Newton-Conover High School Varsity Science Olympiad Team attended and competed at the Hickory Regional Science Olympiad Tournament. The competition took place on the campus of CVCC in Hickory, NC. The N-CHS team competed against 17 other high school Varsity teams and 5 high school Junior Varsity teams. Students on our team were awarded medals in 6 of the competitive events! Check out our students' accomplishments below!

Science Olympiad - The Sport of Science!

Next stop - State Science Olympiad Tournament!

Students who placed 1st overall in their individual events have the opportunity to compete at the State Science Olympiad Tournament at NC State University on April 20th and 21st of this year! Unfortunately, our team did not place high enough to attend as a group, but Faith Bradshaw, Matthew Connor, Ben Harris, and Owen Stegall have the opportunity to attend the State Tournament, in their respective events, as they placed 1st above all of the high school Varsity and Junior Varsity teams. Another huge congratulations to these students as they move on to represent our school at the state-level competition! Scores are still not finalized until the end of the day on Wednesday of this week, but we look forward to receiving our invitations to the State Tournament for the 3rd year in a row!
