Would you like to volunteer at the ISO State Tournament?  Please pick an event and time that works for you!  If you are associated with a team, please pick an event in the opposite division from your team.  Thanks!    Please see the Registration tab for details on where to check in Saturday.


(or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for more help)


 All teams are required to provide at least one volunteer to assist in an event at the state tournament.  The volunteer does NOT need a science background (but one is handy if they have one).  All volunteer opportunities are 3-4 hours in length, and volunteers must stay the entire time to ensure success of the event.  We have set up 2 online volunteer forms that we need EVERY team to fill out. 


Please note, your volunteer MUST sign up for the OPPOSITE DIVISION!!  If you sign up for the same division as your team, you will be asked to change to the opposite division.

Step 1 (Due by March 26 at midnight):  Fill out the Team Volunteer Form.   This form is simple and just tells us who your volunteer is.

Step 2 (Due by March 27 at 9am):  Have your volunteer select a volunteer opportunity.   This website allows your volunteer to pick an event they are interested in and works into their schedule.

National Anthem Singers

If you have any students who would like to sing the National Anthem at the Awards Ceremony, please email Natalie Keigher at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before Thursday at noon.


Awards Ceremony

We are excited about the upcoming tournament!  As mentioned in an earlier email, Huff Gym is under construction.  Because of this, we will have split Awards Ceremonies for the two Divisions in Foellinger Auditorium.


We ask that you be patient and understanding during the awards time.  There is not a lot of space in Foellinger so we will need your students to place all their equipment, supplies and back packs on your bus before the ceremony.  There is no food  and no drinks other than water allowed in the auditorium.  Please tell all your students and parents to follow these rules.


Awards Ceremony seating will be assigned.  There are events that are running during the day in Foellinger Auditorium; we ask that you do not save seats during the day or store materials in the auditorium.  When the events are completed, we will remove all items from the auditorium as we set up for the awards ceremony.   All teams will receive a specific row/area for their team to sit together (assigned seats).  We will post this information outside of Foellinger, in the Armory and at Headquarters on Saturday around noon.  There will also be signs for teams designating the rows inside the auditorium.  There will be a few teams in the balcony.  The rest of the balcony will be seating for parents and other spectators. 


The most difficult part of this schedule is transition from Division B to Division C.  The Division B schools will need to exit the auditorium completely before the Division C schools can start to come into the building.  We will have ISO volunteers trying to manage this transition and we ask that you be patient and respectful.  Division C schools, please wait in the Quad until all the Division B schools have exited the building before moving to your assigned seats. 


Here is the schedule:


Foellinger Auditorium

  • 3:00 pm – Events end and clean up begins for Awards Ceremony
  • 4:00 pm – Doors open for Division B teams to find their seats
  • 4:30 pm – Slide Show
  • 4:45 pm – National Anthem
  • 4:50 pm – Welcome Address
  • 5:00 pm – Parade of Schools – Division B
  • 5:10 pm – Medals for Division B
  • 6:00 pm – Close Division B Awards

Division B schools will exit the auditorium.  Division C schools should wait in the Quad for the Division B schools to exit before entering the building. 

  • 6:00 pm – Division C Schools enter auditorium
  • 6:45 pm – Slide Show
  • 7:00 pm – National Anthem
  • 7:05 pm – Welcome Address
  • 7:15 pm – Medals for Division C
  • 8:15 pm – Close Division C Awards



If your school will not be attending the Awards Ceremony, please let us know by Friday.
