Middle (Div B) & High (Div C) School
Division B and C is VASO's flagship program. VASO holds regional qualifying tournaments open to all registered teams in Virginia. The State Tournament, held in-person on the UVA campus, is open to the highest scoring teams at the regional tournaments. The State winners in each division are then invited to the national tournament in May.
For regionals, VASO will be doing a hybrid model. Written tests will be done at teams' school, using Scilympiad and proctored by team coaches and parents. Devices and most of the chemistry events will happen at in-person Hands-On Days.
