All second teams will be accepted before any third teams are accepted.

If a team has fewer than 3 members who are able to attend the event, that team will forfeit their spot and an alternate team will be selected.
February 27, 2021 Preliminary Rounds of TSB!

* Only Team 1s are eligible for Early Bird selection. TSB is seeking sponsors to provide an Amazon Alexa Dot for those teams selected during Early Bird registration to use the ORAU Science Bowl voice app for practice. Additional teams from the same school may register early (and are encouraged to do so!), but each school will only receive one Dot, if they are available through TSB.
