A team of Oxford High School (OHS) students recently won the regional competition for the 2017 National Science Bowl® (NSB), advancing the OHS Science Bowl team to the national-level competition. The OHS Science Bowl team—comprised of Oxford students Anish Ravishankar, Nitin Ankisetty, Shahbaz Gul, Isuru Hewamanna, and Edward Hu—will travel to Washington, D.C., this spring to compete in the NSB National Finals. 
 
The National Science Bowl® brings together thousands of  middle and high school students from across the country to compete in a fast-paced question-and-answer format where they solve technical problems and answer questions on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics and math. The Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science sponsors the nationwide competition, which is now in its 27th year. 
 
“The National Science Bowl® continues to be one of the premier academic competitions across the country and prepares America’s students for future successes in some of the world’s fastest growing fields of science, technology and engineering,” said Dr. J. Stephen Binkley, acting director of the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, in a U.S. Department of Energy press release. “Each year, the DOE Office of Science provides this unique opportunity, and I am honored to congratulate all the competitors who are advancing to the national finals, where they will continue to showcase their talents as top students in math and science.” 
 
The National Science Bowl® will be held from April 27-May 1 in Washington, D.C. The top 16  high school teams and the top 16 middle school teams in the National Finals will win $1,000 for their school science departments. 
 
Approximately 265,000 students have participated in the National Science Bowl®, one of the nation’s largest science competitions, in its 26-year history. Each year, more than 14,000 students participate in the national competition, which is managed by the DOE’s Office of Science.
