Team Approval Process
The WV Middle School Regional Science Bowl is a 1-day rain-or-shine competition with required attendance at all official events on Friday, February 9, 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 middle schools must register their teams on the NSB website at https://science.energy.gov/wdts/nsb under “Regional Competitions.” 
  2. Eligibility to compete at the 2018 WVSB Middle School Regional competition will be open to 24 total teams, comprised of up to three teams from each of the eight RESA areas.
  3. A school can register only up to two teams, Team 1 (first registered team) and Team 2 (second registered team). Teams will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date/time stamp when their complete registrations were submitted, with first registered teams taking precedence over second registered teams, with the goal of attracting diversity among participating schools. 
  4. Eligible first registered teams will be approved to participate as soon as possible after registration until available slots are filled. 
  5. Beginning 8 weeks prior to the event and space permitting, second registered teams will be approved to participate. 
  6. If the 24 team tournament field is not filled during the registration process 8 weeks prior to the event, WVSB Coordinators reserve the right to deviate from the eligibility rules and select teams to round-out the competition determined by the date/time stamp when their complete registrations were submitted.

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