STATE CHAMPS! Harriton Science Olympiad Claims PA Crown

The Harriton and Lower Merion Science Olympiad squads recently competed in the 2024 Pennsylvania Science Olympiad State Tournament where the two District teams delivered outstanding performances, finishing in first and third place, respectively!

As Pennsylvania’s state champion, the Rams earned one of the state’s two bids to the National Science Olympiad Tournament, which will be held at Michigan State University on May 24-25, 2024. Cumberland Valley High School was the other national qualifier, finishing just ahead of Lower Merion as the state runner-up by a mere nine points.

Harriton collected an impressive 15 top-three finishes, including seven gold medals, and earned at least one individual accolade in all but two events. Congratulations to both teams on their remarkable results at states and best of luck to Harriton at Nationals! Let’s go, Aces & Rams!
