    Again for the 2016-17 school year, the State of Michigan set aside $250,000 to support school districts with established or new Science Olympiad teams.  Yea!  All Michigan public school districts are eligible to apply by November 15, 2016.  Each district will be advised of the support available to them by December 15, 2016.    The primary difference from last year is that the grant maximums are per team, not per district.  A representative from your district will need to fill out the application at this MDE website.  Contact your school district to figure out who will coordinate the application.
