    Salmon Bowl participants

    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 20th Annual Salmon Bowl will be held February 18th, 2017.

    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.
