As the premiere biology competition for high school students in the United States, the USA Biolympiad (USABO) enriches the life science education of nearly 10,000 talented students annually. It provides the motivation, curricular resources, and skills training to take them beyond their classroom experience to the level of international competitiveness. Check out "What Is the USABO?" in the toolbar above for further information about the USABO. To view the full 2020 USABO Scheduleclick here.

Since CEE began administering the USABO, every member of "USA Biolympiad Team" has medaled at the IBO. All four members of the USA Biolympiad Team in years 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2017 were awarded gold medals. The USA Biolympiad Team has achieved the coveted Number 1 position in the world in 2011 and 2013. The USABO looks forward to USA Biolympiad Team participating in the 2020 International Biology Olympiad in Nagasaki, Japan July 3 to 11.

After two rounds of challenging exams, twenty Finalists are invited to a residential training program where they learn advanced biological concepts and exacting lab skills at the USABO National Finals. Ultimately, four students earn the right as USA Biolympiad Team to represent the USA at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO), a worldwide competition involving student teams from over seventy countries.

Students are evaluated on the number of questions they answer correctly during the exams.
