ClimateScience Olympiad 2022
ClimateScience Olympiad is a student competition to find solutions to climate change. Participate on your own or in a team of two, and compete against youths from around the world to find solutions to climate change. The top 10 teams will win a share of the $15,000 prize pool.
How it works
The qualifier round is a 25-minute online quiz. You can do this online right now, later, or as a student at your school. It works on your computer or smartphone.
From February, schools can register their qualifier events to allow all students to participate in sync. Upon verification, schools can also get printable versions of the sheets and conduct exams in paper form.
The best 10% of all qualifier attempts advance to the Quarterfinals. Quarterfinals follow the same quick-question format as Qualifiers.
In the semifinal, you choose one of three problem statements to respond to. To help you prepare, you are told the topics 10 days before the event, but the exact problem statement is only revealed at the start of the actual qualifier event.
Then you have 3 hours to research and write essay responses to questions related to the problem statement. ClimateScience will score each team’s solution.
4. The Final
Every finalist will be awarded a Bronze Medal, the top 20 and top 10 will be awarded a Silver and Gold Medal, respectively. The top teams split the prize pool of $15,000 (USD).
In the final, you’ll write a proposal about a major climate-related issue and be interviewed by our judges.
