Over a month ago, Clark Science Olympiad competed in the 2022-2023 Nevada State Science Olympiad Competition - and we were named the state champions for the 12th time! And just a week from now, we will travel to Wichita, Kansas to compete at the annual Science Olympiad National Tournament! With 56 medals under our belt for this season alone, we owe our success to our advisors, competitors, and sponsors who have worked day and night to make this dream a reality.

Here's to a new year :)
This weekend, Clark Science Olympiad competed in the 2021-2022 Nevada Science Olympiad State Competition, being named the state champions in all of Nevada! Winning 1st Place qualifies us to represent our state of Nevada and compete at the official National Science Olympiad Tournament! Another gold trophy this year also signifies our 11th time placing first in Nevada Science Olympiad. Our teams, officers, and coaches have worked tirelessly throughout this school year, but it has earned us a total of 58 medals, sweeping the competition. Looking forward to our team at nationals!
From February 12 to 19, we competed virtually in BirdSO against 177 teams across the nation! We were able to score 6 medals within the top 15 of the events! It was a great opportunity to practice before the state competition coming soon!
On February 5th, Clark Science Olympiad's Black and Gold teams traveled to Pennsylvania to compete in-person against 28 teams across the nation! Our team won 2nd overall and there were 28 medals earned: 5 gold medals, 5 silver medals, 4 bronze medals, 7 fourth place medals, and 7 fifth place medals. It was an amazing experience to visit Penn State College and enjoy crunching the snow there!
On January 15, 2022, all 4 of Clark's Science Olympiad teams competed in the Science Olympiad Las Vegas Invitational (SOLVI) where 58 teams attended in total. Clark's overall ranking was 5th place amongst nationally-ranked teams such as Troy and Mountain View High School! 3 gold medals, 2 bronze medals, 4 fourth place medals, 1 fifth place medal, and 5 sixth place medals were earned! Congratulations to all teams and we'd love to give a huge shoutout to Mrs. Miller, Kayla Yao, and Joanna Chi for putting together this invitational! In less than a week our black and gold teams will be flying to Pennsylvania to compete at the Science Olympiad at Penn State Invitational (SOAPS)! We are excited for what will come!!
On January 8th of this new year, Clark Science Olympiad's Black and Orange teams competed in the Science Olympiad National Invitational (SONI) where 264 teams across the United States participated. We are proud to say after yesterday's award ceremony that we have scored 13 national medals with 8 events that are top 10 in the nation. There is much to look forward to!! Next comes SOLVI...
In December, Clark Science Olympiad's Orange and Blue teams flew to and competed at the Seven Lakes Invitational in Katy, Texas! Our teams medaled 1st for 3 events (one being a special at Seven Lakes: Pokemon Trivia), 2nd for Bridges, 3rd in 2 events, 4th in Remote Sensing, 7th in Forensics, and 8th in 2 events. The first tournament setting off Clark's new invitational season is to a great start with 5th place overall, and we won't forget the amazing experiences created this trip! Moving forward to Soni!
