Code of Ethics

Student participants are expected to compete in tournament events with honest effort to follow the rules and the spirit of the competition. Team members are expected to be the builders of all the devices used in the events. The goal of competition is to give one's best effort while displaying honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship.

Students, coaches, parents, and guests are expected to display courtesy and respect toward Olympiad officials, other teams, and guests of the Olympiad. Failure to show honesty and/or courtesy by a participant, coach, parent, or guest of the team may result in the disqualification of the team from that event, the entire tournament or future tournaments.

Additional detailed information can be found on the National Science Olympiad Code of Ethics page. It is expected that all coaches have read and shared this information to their team and volunteers.
