Eastside wins the 2015 NOSB

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - On behalf of 2015 Spoonbill event staff, we would like to send a wave of THANK YOU to each of you for helping us complete the 11th Annual Spoonbill Bowl. Firstly, the competition was a success largely because of all the Pre-Bowl organization of Angela Lodge and Paul Aunspaugh. This dedicated team worked tirelessly behind the scenes preparing for the competition.

The second success was the training, preparation and enthusiasm of our outstanding Room Officials—moderators, science judges, rules judges, runners, scorekeepers, timekeepers, expert science judges and Bowl Central team. Thank you to our returning volunteers and our NEW volunteers. We sincerely hope that your first Spoonbill Bowl was filled with many positive memories and a willingness to join us again!

We are asking ALL Volunteers to please, please, please complete the event survey distributed by the National Ocean Sciences Bowl headquarters. We are trying to make 2015 the year that ALL Volunteers complete the post-event survey. Let’s go for the Gold with a 100% response. These surveys are an essential aspect of the program evaluation that our sponsor agencies require to support future funding requests.
