The state finals for the 2013 Kentucky Science Olympiad were held April 27 on the WKU campus.

The overall winners were duPont Manual High School’s Red Team from Louisville in the high school division and Russell Independent Middle School’s Maroon Team from Russell in the middle school division.

The first place winners were decided by individual or small team competition in a number of scientific fields represented by Ogden College of Science and Engineering in the fields of Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Geography, Geology and Physics.  The winning schools will represent Kentucky at the national competition May 17-18 at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Final results from the competition are available on the Kentucky Science Olympiad website at http://www.wku.edu/scienceolympiad/scoring_results.php.

The success of this event is due to the dedication of middle and high school students and teachers. The event would not be possible without the outstanding volunteer work of the faculty, staff and students at WKU.
