Individual schools will be invited to register their events. Those events allow schools to host qualifiers for all participants at once. Upon verificaton, schools can also get printable versions of the sheets and conduct exams in paper form.
Each person can participate up to 4 times. If a participant is found to have participated more than 4 times they will be disqualified.
All participants will receive a certificate, and top participants a special honour.
Registration for CSO22 opening soon.
2. Quarter Finals
The best 10% of all qualifier participants advance to the Quarter Finals. Quarter Finals follow the same quick-question format that Qualifiers follow.
Congratulations! You've demonstrated advanced knowledge on climate solutions. Now it's time to put this to good use and start solving some real problems.
In the Semi-Final, you choose one of three problem statements to respond to. To help you prepare, you are told the topics 10 days before the event, but the exact problem statement is only revealed at the start of the actual qualifier event.
Then you have 3 hours to research and write essay responses to questions related to the problem statement. ClimateScience will score each team's solution.
4. The Final
If you make it to the final, you have essentially won already. Why?
Every finalist will be awarded a Bronze Medal, the top 25 and top 10 will be awarded a Silver and Gold Medal, respectively. The top teams split the prize pool of $15,000 (USD).
Finals require a written exam, a presentation, and an interview. As in 2021, we hope 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.
