Registration fees for the 32nd Annual Los Angeles County Science Olympiad have been reduced compared to last year's fees (Division A fees remain the same.). The reduction in fees is to bring consistency across all regional competitions. Secondly, Coaches and Student Manuals are no longer included in the registration fee. All manuals for Divisions B and C will be available for download from the National Science Olympiad Web site. When they are available we will post a notice on this website.
Registration fees for each team are:
Division A (Grades 4-6) $300*
Division B (Grades 6-9) $325*
Division C (Grades 9-12) $325*
*See note below for registration fees using PayPal.
Online Electronic Payment Option
You may always pay the team fee with a personal check or check issued by your district. The Los Angeles County Science Olympiad (LACoSO) does not have the capability of processing purchase orders. If paying by check exit this page and send your check along with your Intent to Participate to complete your registration.
You may also pay the team registration fee online using PayPal. PayPal is a secure, online, payment processing service used by the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad and the Southern California Science Olympiad. This year LACoSO is partnering with Southern California Science Olympiad to handle all team registrations. There is an additional payment processing fee of $10 that covers handling and verification of all electronic payments. The processing fee is built into the PayPal option for each team registration.
You do not need to have a PayPal account of your own to pay team registration fees using PayPal. Team registration fees can be paid with an existing PayPal account, debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express), prepaid gift card, or PayPal credit. You also have the option of creating a PayPal account at the time of payment.
If paying electronically through the PayPal service you will receive a notice that payment has been received. A notice will also be sent to the LACoSO office.
Note: Registration of a team is "first-come, first-registered." Registration is considered complete when payment has cleared the bank and an Intent to Participate has been received by the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad Office. Online electronic payments are received by the Southern California Science Olympiad within minutes and there is no waiting for a check to clear the bank.
