The 32nd International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI 2020) will be held in Singapore from 19 to 26 July 2020. It is the most prestigious computer science competition for secondary school and high school students around the world. The competition is one of five international science Olympiads held annually. IOI 2020 will be hosted by the National University of Singapore (NUS) School of Computing. The competition is powered by Acer and supported by the Ministry of Education (MOE) Singapore and the Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau (SECB).

Chicago Public Schools and Science Olympiad are proud to enter the 12th year of the Urban Schools Initiative (USI) program for 2018-2019, with more than 35 middle and high schools represented. "After participating in Science Olympiad and winning two medals at the Regional Tournament, I decided I wanted to major in science," said a member of the Steinmetz High School Science Olympiad team.

Air Force Recruiting Service recognizes that Science Olympiad team members embody many of the core principles that make a great leader, and presented the two gold medal winners of the MagLev event at the 2014 Science Olympiad National Tournament with $1,000 college scholarships, as they have done annually since 2011. A former Science Olympiad competitor now serving in the Air Force said, "Science Olympiad gave me an opportunity to develop my scientific and engineering mind so when I went to college and eventually on to my military career, I was a better prepared individual."
