Salmon Bowl is an academic science bowl with an ocean science twist! High school students from all over Oregon and Idaho come to compete, test their ocean know-how, and earn some serious bragging rights–for the win!

The 19th Annual Salmon Bowl was on February 27, 2016.
Congrats to all teams who competed and to our winners from Boise High School!

Thanks to all of our wonderful volunteers and supporters, the 19th Annual Salmon Bowl was a success! Two teams from Boise High School competed in the final round, making for a very exciting end to an already wonderful day. The Boise A team won and will be heading to Morehead City, NC to represent the Salmon Bowl at Nationals in April, 2016...for the third year in a row!

Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors and local businesses who make this great event possible each year!

The National Oceanic Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed high school academic marine sciences competition. There are twenty-five regional sites of the NOSB across the country; Oregon State University proudly hosts the Oregon Regional Competition called the 'Salmon Bowl.' Teams of 4–5 students from high schools throughout Oregon compete in a quiz-bowl to win great prizes and scholarships. Each year, over 150 students, teachers, and community members volunteer to help enrich science teaching and learning. Together, we enhance public understanding and stewardship of the oceans, and inspire those who want to pursue a career in marine sciences.

If you're interested in volunteering, please e-mail or email for more information about the event. It's a big competition and we're going to need a lot of support, but we also encourage community members to come and watch the competition. This event is really fun, so be in touch, get excited, and join us for Salmon Bowl!
