Greetings! We are getting set for the 23nd Annual Salmon Bowl!
Salmon Bowl 2020
Where: Oregon State University Campus
When: Saturday, February 1, 2020
The National Oceanic Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed high school academic marine sciences competition. Schools form teams of 4-5 students to compete in a quiz-bowl to win great prizes, scholarships, and a chance to compete at the national competition. OSU hosts the Salmon Bowl, Oregon’s regional NOSB. 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 while promoting student exposure to STEM.
Recruit as many volunteers as possible to help with the many facets involved in making this competition come to life! We need volunteers not only for the main event on Saturday, but we will also need volunteers to help with set-up and practice rounds on Friday, January 31st 2020.
Volunteer opportunities are divided into two categories, game officials and support staff. If you have prior NOSB/Salmon Bowl experience and/or have a preference for your role, please let us know! Game official positions (one training session required, January 14 or 23 at 6 p.m., or January 15 at 12 p.m., in Strand 340):
Event Support Staff (helps with general logistics):
If volunteering as a game official sounds like more of a commitment than you can make, then please consider volunteering as support staff. These positions don't require any training, just set-up day and/or game-day commitment where you still get to interact with the teams.
General info. meetings:
Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 6-7 p.m. in Burt 193
Thursday, January 9, 2020, 6-7 p.m. in Burt 193
Whether you have participated in the past or you are new to NOSB, we highly encourage all interested parties to attend the General Information Meeting.
To show our gratitude, all of our volunteers get a free t-shirt, free lunch, and a chance to amazing win prizes during our raffle! Most importantly, you’ll receive that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from donating your time to a worthwhile cause. It may just be a game, but it's a game that promotes ocean knowledge, one science question at a time.
