Pilgrimage Homeschool Science Olympiad
Maryland State Champions 2015
Dear Friends and Family,
We are thrilled to announce that both our Pilgrimage Homeschool middle and high school teams have won first place in the Maryland Science Olympiad competition held last week at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Our teams competed against students from public and private schools, as well as other homeschooled children across the state. We are passionate about science and we are very excited that our team of 6th to 12th grade students will now represent Maryland at the National Science Olympiad Tournament at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska on May 15-16, 2015.
Science Olympiad is a national competition where teams of up to 15 students compete in 23 different science events, including in-depth research, building events, and sample identification. Most events also include a paper and pencil test portion. Of approximately 6,000 teams that compete each year in the Science Olympiad tournament, only 60 middle school and 60 high school teams continue on to the national competition. Pilgrimage Homeschool is not associated with a public or private school system. We do not have public funding, a PTA, or alumni support to help finance our team. Thus we need to raise our own funds to attend this prestigious event. We are asking you to consider sponsoring our team. Specific needs include travel expenses, team shirts, and safe packaging for our competition devices. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for our team! Science is an important component of our future as individuals, as a state, and as a country. We are thrilled and honored to be representing Maryland at the National Science Olympiad competition. We would appreciate your support to help make this opportunity a reality for the Pilgrimage Homeschool team!
Thank you in advance for your support.
