SUMMARY OF UPDATED NOSB COMPETITION RULES

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THE ENTIRE REVISED RULES DOCUMENT (available at this page)

Minor language revisions have been made to a few of the competition rules to assist with clarity. Therefore, it is in a team’s best interest to read the entire rules document. Any language changes or updates have been highlighted in the full rules document in green. Some revisions of importance are summarized below:

 Rule 23 – Rule 23 has been revised to include clarification on acceptable answers to multiple-choice questions. Specifically regarding singular and plural answers. If a written answer is singular, the acceptable answer must be singular; similarly, if the written answer is plural, the acceptable answer must be plural.

 Rule 24 – Rule 24 has been revised to further clarify the consequences of consultation among both sets of team members during toss-up and bonus questions.

 Rule 35 – Rule 35 has been revised to make it very clear that NO cell phone or electronic devices are to be visible or in use during the competition matches, including the 2-minute break. Those caught using such devices will be asked to leave the room for the rest of that match.

 Rule 51 – Rule 51 has been revised to clarify, with examples, what happens if the Moderator inadvertently provides an answer to a toss-up or bonus question during the competition match.

Albany High wins the NOSB Finals! Congratulations to the home team!

The NOSB is an interdisciplinary ocean science education program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership based in Washington, D.C. The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s Institute of Marine Sciences and Seahorse Coastal Consulting hosted the Finals, which took place April 21-24, 2016 at Carteret Community College.
