 Welcome to WESO 2021!

Dear Science Olympians!

We hope that you are all doing well. We missed the 2020 Olympiad and are excited to announce that plans for WESO 2021 are UNDERWAY!! We’ll post information as it is released here but want to encourage ALL 2021 OLYMPIANS to reach out to their school’s head coach today to let them know that you are interested in participating. Not sure who your school’s head coach is? Email us at weso.science@gmail.com and we can direct you to the correct person.

Because the safety and well-being of all our Olympians, coaches, and families is a priority, the format for this year’s Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad will be going VIRTUAL. What does that mean? Please follow the Detailed Information for Schools link below to find out more and read through our FAQ Document which will be updated weekly. 

We are so excited to launch WESO 2021. Join our blog for updated information and don’t forget to reach out to your school’s head coach!

See you (virtually),

Your WESO Board
