Students who have a cell phone ring in an event may be disqualified in the event, at the discretion of the event supervisor. All students are strongly encouraged to turn off all cell phones or do not take them into competitive events.
In accordance with the National Science Olympiad policy on media and images, students, coaches, team representatives, and spectators will only be allowed to take pictures of people and devices associated with their school. No imagery (still or video) of other students and/or other schools’ devices will be allowed to be taken during the tournament, in accordance of NSO policy (policy created in May 2010).
Pictures of medal winners will be taken by a photographer from the Society of Physics Students. These pictures will be posted to a special Flickr account after the tournament. All coaches will receive a link to that account after the tournament, you can then download as many photos as you need. Please do NOT send people up to the stage to take pictures during the awards ceremony, we want to keep it moving. Pictures of the medal winners for each event will be taken immediately after they are given their medals, at a photo area right next to the stage.
