The Sea Lion Bowl is a rigorous, day-long academic competition for high school students modeled after the National Science Bowl. The Sea Lion Bowl is one of 25 regional bowls across the country that make up the National Ocean Science Bowl, coordinated by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership in Washington, DC. The NOSB began in 1998, The Year of the Ocean, as a way to encourage high school students and teachers to learn more about the ocean and ocean exploration. The NOSB provides a venue for students who excel in math and science to receive regional and national recognition for their diligence and talents while broadening their awareness and understanding of ocean science.
