The Science Olympiad National Tournament (SONT) 2013 is coming to Wright State University on 17-18 May 2013 and expecting over 1800 middle and high school students!!
IMPORTANT: 12 May 2013 update. Thanks to everyone who has signed up. Final matching of volunteers to events are nearing completion. Some of our needs for Friday have changed. Almost all of our Saturday slots have been filled. We truly appreciate your energy and enthusiasm.
Note: Events may not fit neatly into either a 6:30 - noon or 12:00 noon - 5 time slot. Grading may cause an event to run longer. We ask for your flexibility if we contact you to inquire if you can adjust your availability. If you are asked to remain thru lunch, we will offer you a box lunch! Our goal is to staff our tournament so that events run on schedule with all scoring completed promptly. If you can be flexible in your time, we sincerely appreciate your assistance.
The Science Olympiad National Tournament (SONT) 2013, takes place in various buildings throughout the university's Dayton campus. Teams begin arriving as early as Wednesday the 15th of May 2013 and depart as late as Sunday the 19th of May with some teams leaving on Monday the 20th. This national level activity brings Wright State University and the Dayton community into the spotlight for the entire weekend and we are looking for lots of volunteers to help us put on a memorable tournament. The event offers many opportunities for you to volunteer and be a part of the excitement and interest Science Olympiad creates for the youth who participate.
Take a look at the various opportunities listed below. If you can share some of your time, please register and select from the times listed. We truly appreciate your help in making this tournament a wonderful experience for everyone. Please check back often as we will update our volunteer needs as more requests for help come in from various committees across the next few months.
We'll contact you in early May to provide you details on your volunteer assignment and you will receive most of your information about the tournament via e-mail. We will also have a volunteer orientation prior to the start of the tournament. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and can receive community service credit for their time.
