SSA Sophomore Earns Spot in Top 20 of Prestigious National Biology Olympiad

Shady Side Academy Senior School Sophomore Evan X. recently competed in the prestigious 2024 USA Biolympiad (USABO) and placed in the top 20 nationally. 

To earn this top 20 recognition, Evan had to complete two challenging online exams. First, he took an open exam with 12,000 students from across the country in February. Of those students, only 400 – including Evan – qualified for the semifinal exam. Then, from that pool of semifinalists, Evan earned one of the top 20 scores, a qualification for national finals. 

The USABO is the premiere biology competition for high school students in the United States, which serves as the sole basis of selection of members to the USA International Biology Olympiad team.
