State Director Update: After offering the opportunity for taking on the directorship to the members of Maine's science community, it appears that I will continue to man the helm for the near future. I will be seeking to organize a committee to support the organization and sponsorship of our tournaments.

I am anticipating that our Division B tournament will be held at the University of Maine, Orono, again next year, and that our Division C tournament will be held at the University of Southern Maine, Gorham.

I must thank David Sturm at UMO for running the MS tournament and Robert Sanford at USM for supporting our HS tournament.


Division B: Troy Howard Middle School, Belfast. Coached by Jacquie Kahn & Steve Groening
Division C: Mt. Ararat High School, Topsham. Coached by Glenn Evans, Jason Knight & Evelyn Barbour.

These two teams will compete at the National Tournament on Saturday, May 20th at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

Important Information about 2011 Tournaments
See letter below:

Dear Middle School Coaches,

Maine will NOT be holding a Division B tournament this year. Although I am sure the students had a wonderful experience the past three years, organizing, preparing for, and running the tournament is more than this State Director can manage. The High School Division C tournament will be held, so perhaps your area high schools would be interested in participating if they don't already.

At Waynflete, the MS students are going to have a science/engineering activity and mini-competitions using the types of building events that the Science Olympiad typically includes. That could be a good substitute for your students too.

I am hoping that this will be my last year as State Director (it has been very difficult to find people interested in taking on the responsibility or even finding volunteers to help), but when I do find a replacement, I will contact all of you with that information.

Thank you very much for your support and participation in years' past.
