Things to do after you register:
1. Send in payments and insurance certificates.
Please be sure to send in the appropriate registration fee as well as the Guarantee of Insurance.
Each participating team must provide HLPUSD a General Liability Certificate of Insurance with a $1 million per occurrence limit and $2 million aggregate.
An endorsement must be provided naming Hacienda La Puente Unified School District, its officers, agents, employees, and volunteers as Additional Insureds.
Without the proper Guarantee of Insurance that specifically lists "HLPUSD, its agents, officers, employees, and volunteers" as Additional Insureds, your team will be unable to participate in the tournament.
2. Submit a PDF of your exam and key.
After registration, you will be assigned an event to proctor. Please email relevant event exams and keys to Alaric Qin at least a week before the tournament. We plan to distribute flash drives containing all exams and keys to each team at the end of the day.
3. Check State and National Rules Clarifications.
We will follow the Southern California State Science Olympiad's rules clarifications. Click below to check these clarifications prior to the tournament.
4. Sign up for engineering event time slots.
Once available, a link to the ESUS signup system will be posted here. The ESUS sign-up will close the day before the tournament. The official schedule will be posted at the event locations the day of the tournament, and event supervisors may decide whether schools can switch to empty slots in certain hours.
5. Look at event-specific information.

6. Bring day-of-tournament registration materials.
Upon check-in at the registration table at the event, teams need to have photo releases and participation releases for each participating member of their team.
These will be traded for exactly 15 wristbands per team, which students must wear in order to participate that day. The photo and invitational release forms will be posted when available.
7. Prepare for and run your event.
Most schools will have one or more event assignments. Please have your event supervisors report to the Room 29 on the day of the tournament for further instruction.
Out of fairness for all participating teams, please remember to keep all test material original, and most importantly please be sure not to reuse portions of event exams from any previous invitational, regional, state or national tournaments.
8. Remember tournament policies and ground rules.
Just in case anyone needs a refresher.
