ClimateScience is a global charity that is creating and providing educational resources on solutions to climate change around the world.

Application is open for the ClimateScience Olympiad 2022 which is a global student competition aimed at finding solutions to climate change.

You stand the chance of competing against other students from around the world to find solutions to climate change and you can participate on your own or in a team of two. The top 10 teams will win a share of the $15,000 prize pool.

The Olympiad is divided into four phases. These are:

1. Qualifiers

Registration for this phase is open until August 10, 2022.

The qualifier phase is a 25-minute online quiz that can be taken at home or school and it works on your computer or smartphone.

Schools can register their qualifier events from February to allow all students to participate together. Upon verification, schools can also get printable versions of the sheets and conduct exams in paper form.

Each person can participate up to 3 times

2. Quarter-Finals

This phase will run from January to August 2022.

The best 10% of all qualifier attempts advance to the quarter-finals phase which is a 25-minute online quiz. The quarter-finals phase follows the same quick-question format as the qualifier phase.

3. Semi-Finals

This phase will run from March to September 2022, and it will be done online as well.

Participants will choose and respond to one of the three problem statements, and you have 3 hours to research and write essay responses to questions related to the problem statement.

Participants will be given topics 10 days before the event to help you prepare, but the exact problem statement will only be revealed at the commencement of the actual qualifier event.

ClimateScience will score each team’s solution.

4. The Final

The final phase will be held online and it is scheduled for October 2022.

In the finals, participants will write a proposal about a major climate-related issue and be interviewed by ClimateScience judges.

The top teams will share the prize pool of $15,000 (USD).

Every finalist (top 100) will be awarded a Bronze Medal, while the top 20 and top 10 finalists will be awarded a Silver and Gold Medal, respectively.

Just as in 2021, ClimateScience hopes to conduct the winners’ ceremony at the United Nations’ Climate Summit (COP) and give the top teams the opportunity to present their solutions on a world stage.
