Spring Hill to Offer Scholarships to Medalists
Spring Hill College will offer a $1,000 scholarship ($500 per semester) renewable for up to eight (8) semesters of full-time undergraduate enrollment to each member of the Division B and Division C Gold Medal teams competing in the 2014 Regional Science Olympiad Tournament at Spring Hill College. Winners must be unconditionally admitted into Spring Hill College and maintain a 2.75 GPA while at SHC to remain eligible.
New Manuals for ESO Division A2 Teams
While our B and C division coaches manuals change annually, the Elementary Science Olympiad (A2) manual only changes every few years. Well, this is one of those years. All ESO teams will need to pay the $35 registration fee for 2014 tournaments in order to receive a copy of the new manual. It will be the official manual for all 3 ESO tournaments in Alabama - West Alabama, JHS, and Auburn.
