Team Approval Process
The WV High School Regional Science Bowl is a 1-day rain-or-shine competition with required attendance at events on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

The WVSB Coordinators are ultimately responsible for selecting and inviting participating teams, and strive to preserve fairness of opportunity and geographically diverse representation. The WVSB Coordinators use the process below to guide team selection.

  1. Interested high school teams must contact their respective local level RESA area/University Coordinator to register to participate in the RESA area preliminary competition. Contacts for these preliminary competitions are as follows:

[Please Note]:

  • Teams must register to participate in the preliminary competition with respect to the RESA area in which their school is located.
  • No more than two teams will be accepted from a single school. 
  • If three or fewer teams from any given RESA area register to participate in a preliminary competition, those teams will receive an automatic invitation to participate in the 2018 WVSB Regional. 
  • In a single RESA area preliminary competition involving more than three teams, the top three winning teams will receive an invitation to participate to the 2018 WVSB Regional, with at least the fourth placed winners recorded for possible random selection as alternate participants. If fewer than three teams from a single RESA area preliminary competition register to participate, the remaining slots will be filled by choosing at random alternate teams from other single RESA area preliminary competitions. 
  • In a combined RESA area preliminary competition involving more than three teams from each of two RESA areas, teams from schools in one RESA area may compete against teams from schools in another RESA area. However, the top three winning teams from each of the two RESA areas will receive an invitation to participate to the 2018 WVSB Regional, with at least the fourth placed winners in each RESA area recorded for possible random selection as alternate participants. If fewer than three teams from a combined RESA area preliminary competition register to participate, the remaining slots will be filled by choosing at least the first alternate team from the other RESA area in that combined competition.

    2.    Eligibility to compete at the 2018 WVSB High School Regional competition will be open to up to 24 total teams.

    3.    Invitations to participate in the 2018 WVSB High School Regional competition will come directly from the WVSB Coordinators.

WVSB Coordinators may also choose to conduct the regional tournament with an incomplete field.
