2017 Salmon Bowl Champion-Neah-Kah-Nie High School

After a long day of competition Neah-Kah-Nie High School came out on top as the champion team at the 20th Anniversary Salmon Bowl Competition. They will be moving onto the National Ocean Science Bowl Finals Competition in April to compete.

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 salmonbowl.volunteer@gmail.com or email salmonbowl.nosb@gmail.com 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! All volunteers get FREE food and T-shirt!
