Team Approval Process
The WV High School Regional Science Bowl is a 2-day rain-or-shine competition with required attendance at events on Friday, February 5, 2016 and Saturday, February 6, 2016.  

Registration fees may be submitted to "Friends of West Virginia Regional Science Bowl Foundation" and mailed to 538 Valley Rd, Morgantown, WV 26505.  

The WVSB Coordinators select and invite participating teams, using the process below.

1) Interested teams contact their RESA coordinator

2a) If two or fewer teams are interested from a given RESA, those teams receive an automatic invitation to participate in the WVSB Regional

2b) If more than two teams are interested from a given RESA, the teams compete in a local (RESA level) tournament to rank the teams.  The top three teams receive an invitation to participate, and the fourth place winners are recorded for possible selection as alternate participants.

3) If the tournament field is incompletely filled after accepting all RESA nominees and winners, participants from among the fourth place winners are randomly selected.  No more than two teams will be accepted from a single school.

4)  WVSB Coordinators reserve the right to select teams according to logistical constraints.  Teams so selected for participation will not be permitted to advance to the regional finals.  WVSB Coordinators may also choose to conduct the regional tournament with an incomplete field.

5) In all cases, invitations to participate in the WVSB will come directly from the WVSB Coordinators.
