Gulf Breeze Schools Set To Compete In National Event

Students from Gulf Breeze Middle School and Gulf Breeze High School are preparing to represent not only their schools but the entire state of Florida at a national science, math and technology-based academic competition in Washington, D.C.

After winning first place in a recent state competition in Orlando, Science Olympiad teams from Northwest Florida, will compete with more than 60 U.S. teams at the National Science Olympiad.

It's the 10th year in a row that Gulf Breeze Middle's Science Olympiad A Team will go to nationals, held at the end of May. It's the seventh consecutive year Gulf Breeze High's team has gone on to compete for the top national prize.

Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, creating a passion for learning science and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science.

Competition consists of 23 events covering all areas of science, and each team member participates in two to four events. Teams consist of no more than 15 members. Most events require two participants and a few require three.
