Weed Science Contest
2023 Weed Science Olympics
2023 will be an exciting year, because in lieu of the Northeastern Weeds Contest, NEWSS student members will have the opportunity to compete in the National Weed Science Olympics!
The National Weed Science Contest is a joint activity between the Northeastern, North Central, Southern, and Western Weed Science Societies. The purpose of this national contest is to provide a competitive educational experience from which students from universities across the country can broaden their applied skills in Weed Science. The contest provides an opportunity for students to meet and interact with each other, be exposed to researchers from other universities and industry, and apply what they have learned using a contest to measure their capabilities. It is also hoped that the contest will promote the discipline of Weed Science and elevate the interest level of those participating in the discipline of Weed Science.
