Floyd County Superintendent Danny Adkins congratulates the middle and high school students who placed in Regional and State Science Olympiad competitions. Regional competition, February 29,was held at the University of Pikeville and state competition, April 13, took place at the University of Kentucky.


Superintendent Adkins comments, “Congratulations Allen Elementary and Coach Tina Williams on being the 2019 Regional Middle School Science Olympiad Champs! Congratulations South Floyd Elementary and Coach Karen Miles for placing 3rd at regionals and advanced to state! Congratulations Betsy Layne High School and Coach Brandon Pascarella, Regional Runner Up!  These students excelled at the regional level!”


Science Olympiad competitions consist of teams of 15 individual students who participate in a variety of events that will require certain skill sets. Each year, certain events change to keep up with the changes in various fields of science and events are held on college campuses to give students the opportunity to tour those colleges. Teamwork is crucial and students must be actively participating.


Adkins continues, “Congratulations AES for being in the Top 10 in three events at state competition and 11th in three additional events! That outstanding performance is from a new team and it’s been almost a decade since Allen Elementary has competed at the state level in Science Olympiad!” Adkins added, “Congratulations BLHS on placing 2nd in an event at the state level!”


“We want to thank our coaches for their support and dedication to their teams and we are hoping to see all Floyd County high schools and middle schools competing next year! Science Olympiad is an outstanding opportunity for students to showcase their skills in many areas.”
