On April 10th, Clark Science Olympiad secured its 10th state title at the virtual Nevada State Tournament. Clark's 4 teams took 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 7th, taking home 13 of the available 15 gold medals. After an unprecedented 17-tournament preseason, we are so proud to have seen our preparation pay off. Congratulations to all our competitors for their hard work! As Nevada's reigning champions, Clark Science Olympiad is excited to represent Nevada with our best performance yet at the National Tournament in May.
In March, Clark Science Olympiad competed in California's BirdSO Invitational and Wisconsin's Menomonie Invitational. At Bird, teams Clark 'Akikiki and Clark Lark flew up the ranks with Top 12 medals in 10 events. In Menomonie's MiniSO flight, Clark medaled 1st and 2nd place for a total of 18 events! Bird and Menomonie mark the last two tournaments of Clark's invitational season, and we couldn't be happier with our 11th place finish out of Bird's 121 teams and a 2nd place trophy from our friends at Menomonomonomonie. Onward to state!
