Salmon Bowl is back! OSU is excited to announce the 2024 Salmon Bowl which will take place in early February. Stay tuned for updates on event dates, information for volunteering, and quiz bowl team registration. We are looking forward to seeing our Salmon Bowl community in person!

For Oregon Science Teachers

If you are an Oregon teacher and interested in having your students come to a future Salmon Bowl or Ocean Sciences Event, please fill out this Google form to receive future salmon bowl information and updates.

OSU Volunteers are needed for this event!

We always need volunteers for our events and would love to have you on our team! Please fill out this Google form, and we will contact you when the yearly coemption becomes closer. The event is usually at the begging of February. If you have prior NOSB/Salmon Bowl experience and/or have a preference for your role, please let us know! Volunteer positions usually include but are not limited to:

  • Rules/science Judge
  • Moderator
  • Scorekeeper/Timekeeper
  • Room set-up and breakdown
  • Volunteer and Team check-in
  • Food (pick-up and serving)
  • Other 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. Register here to volunteer!

What is in it for you?

To show our gratitude, all our volunteers get a free t-shirt, lunch, and a chance to win amazing 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.

How to volunteer

  • Fill out our Volunteer Interest Form.
  • Attend the Volunteer Interest Meeting on November 28th at 5 pm in STAG 313 (Strand Agriculture Hall).
  • Tell your friends and classmates and pass on the need for volunteers.

Chandra Schulte, Co-Coordinator

Chandra is a second-year graduate student at OSU. She is in the Marine Resource Management Master's Program, and she helped coordinate last year's Ocean Science Event. This is her first year coordinating an official Salmon Bowl! She graduated from Stetson University in DeLand, Florida in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Aquatic and Marine Biology. Chandra is currently researching foraminifera and ocean acidification in Dr. Jennifer Fehrenbacher's lab. She is very excited to bring back the Salmon Bowl in 2024!

Jessica Cunningham, Co-Coordinator

Jessica is a first-year graduate student at OSU in the Marine Resource Management Master's Program. She grew up in Lodi, an agricultural town in Northern California, and attended UC Santa Barbara earning a B.S. in Physical Geography with an Ocean Science emphasis and a minor in Earth Science. She is excited to continue her academic career by pursuing research in ocean science education and policy as they pertain to restoration and conservation efforts. Jessica is excited to coordinate her first Salmon Bowl!
