Yankton Middle School and Yankton High School to Compete in National Science Olympiad in May
Those two teams are eligible to compete in the National Science Olympiad at the University of Nebraska May 15-16.
Schools compete with up to 15 team members and two alternates. The competition is patterned after a track meet, with events ranging from hands-on labs to student-build machines and from outdoor events to paper-and-pencil tests. The Olympiad tests both scientific knowledge and skills.
First place in the Middle School/Junior High Division went to Yankton Middle School. Sacred Heart Middle School of Yankton was second, and Dakota Valley Middle School of North Sioux City was third.
Yankton High School won the High School Division, with Brookings High School second, and Spearfish High School third.
