Climate Science Olympiad 2021

Find solutions to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). $10,000 prize pool.

Who can participate?
The contest is hosted two age brackets: 14-17 and 18-25. If you are in one of those at the time of registration, you are eligible regardless of nationality or other factors.

Both members of a team must be within the same age bracket at the time of application. We will require proof-of-age from everyone who makes it to the semi-finals.

Both age brackets participate in the same qualifiers and answer the same type of problem statements. However, we only compare participants within their age groups. This means we score the two brackets independently and normalise them within each other. Semi-finalists, finalists and eventually the winners are then chosen based on the highest normalised score across age groups. This ensures fair comparison regardless of age.

How can I prepare?
Qualifiers: Only 5% of participants can advance to the semi finals, so preparation can make a major difference. You could take our courses or complete our quizzes in the app. Beyond that, read about whatever you are interested in and connect things during the event!

Semi-finalists: If you made it to the semi finals, congratulations! All semi-finalists are invited to a ClimateScience-led training group to help you prepare intensely, if you want to.

Finalists: Same as semi finals.

Winners: The top 3 teams win US$5,000, US$3,000 and US$2,000, respectively. The prize money is split half/half between the two team members or awarded in full in case the winner participated on their own.

Finalists: If there's no more pandemic, finalists will meet in person and attend the 'Green zone' of the United Nations Climate Summit (COP-26) in Glasgow on Nov 1-12, 2021. We are applying for finalists to also get a chance to enter the zone where political conversations happen and will post an update on this by April 2021.

Semi-finalists: You are invited to a ClimateScience-led training group to help you prepare for the semi-final and, if you proceed, for the final.
