GGSO 2021 General Volunteer Application
On February 13th, 2021, high school students from across the nation will compete at the fifth Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational (see last paragraph below if you've never heard of Science Olympiad before!). This tournament is co-hosted by Science Olympiad alumni from Stanford and Cal, and will feature over 2000 competing high school students. Top national teams will be joining schools from up and down California for this competitive tournament.

This year, the tournament will be held remotely on an online testing platform. We need volunteers to help us grade tests in a timely manner and ensure we can deliver the best possible experience for competitors!

You are not required to be available the entire competition day. Due to the online nature of the tournament, we only request that you be available to grade tests over that weekend, so we can have an on-time awards ceremony.

Please fill out this form to indicate any interest in helping put on this incredible tournament. Students from ANY university are welcome to apply.

High school students are NOT allowed to apply to be a volunteer. If you are found to be a high schooler, any team affiliated with you will be disqualified.

Please contact us at or check us out at if you have any questions!

***** This form is due on JANUARY 3RD, 2021 at 11:59pm *****

Read on for a description of Science Olympiad.

Science Olympiad is a national science and engineering competition for middle and high school students. Teams compete in regional, state, and national tournaments, as well as invitational competitions like this year's Golden Gate Tournament. Teams of 15 students study and prepare for various competition events ranging from Anatomy and Physiology to Ornithology or Forensics. Some events involve laboratory experiments or written tests, while others evaluate pre-built engineering devices, though this year the emphasis will be on written tests the competitors can take online.

The Golden Gate Invitational has been a success for the past four years as the first university-led invitational on the West Coast, and we are excited to make our fifth year an inspiring experience for our competitors!
