This year's Louisiana Regional Science Bowl will be held Saturday, March 3, 2012, the University of New Orleans.  Teams from across the state will compete to represent the State in the National Science Bowl® finals to be held April 26 - 30, 2012, at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland.  At the national competition, the top two teams in each division will earn a monetary prize for their schools.  The top five teams will receive prizes and the opportunity to visit International or other DOE offices to experience hands-on science activities.  Teams for the regional competition are being selected on a first-come basis, so please register as soon as possible but no later than February 17, 2012.

Competition is in the form of a morning round-robin session and an afternoon double elimination tournament.  Teams consist of six people from one high school:  five students, one of whom is an alternate; and a coach, usually a science or math teacher.

We are proud to sponsor academic competition through the National Science Bowl®, and hope to have your school's participation.  If you have any questions, please call the Louisiana Regional Science Bowl Coordinator, Charlene Reynolds, at (504) 734-4565, or e-mail Charlene.Reynolds@spr.doe.gov.
