Scale Olympics 2020

Scale Olympics 2020 will be shifting to an online format in the interest of safety amid COVID-19 concerns. The event will utilize the Scale Olympics Handbook currently in effect (2018), thereby offering all 9 events to students. A committee has been established to ensure a smooth transition to an online event. While this year will take on a new shape from prior events, we believe Scale Olympics 2020 will continue to serve as a beneficial goal for both students and teachers alike. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks.

Thank you,

Rebecca Buchan and Laura Wynia, Co-Chairmen
