2022 Invitational

We are pleased to announce that this year, we will be hosting the first ever UNC-Chapel Hill Science Olympiad Invitational! Please be sure to check this website regularly for important information and updates as we prepare for the tournament!

Our tournament will take place on Scilympiad.

IMPORTANT: You can find all of the important logistics surrounding the invitational on this coaches guide!

Date and Format

The invitational will be held in a Mini SO format, although teams are allowed to be together in person if they choose. Most of the events will be on Scilympiad, and teams will be free to do the events whenever they want on 1/29/22 from when the tests open at 8:00 am until when they close at 5:00 pm. Build events will be held as optional trial events, and will be taking place on our campus at the Great Hall on 1/30/22. We will be following the NC events list for Division C, and we will run events according to the state rules.


We will have a registration fee of $40 per school and an additional $20 per additional team from that school. However, if your team is unable to pay this, please reach out to us as fee waivers and financial scholarships may be available.

Registration and Volunteering
