Calling all NOSB Alumni
This coming school year, the NOSB will be celebrating its 20th anniversary! We want to get in touch with you, our NOSB alumni, and find out what you’re doing and the impact the NOSB has had on your life and career. It’s okay if you’re not a marine scientist – we want to hear from you no matter what career path you took. Specifically we’d like to know:

  1. What you’re doing. If you’re in school, what are you majoring in? If you’re out of school, what type of work are you doing?
  2. A brief statement about how the NOSB impacted your life and career (this can be as short as a sentence or as long as you like).
  3. Relevant details – what years you participated, when you graduated, what high school you went to, and your regional bowl.

You can send us this information through:
Email: nosb@oceanleadership.org

Facebook: Post on our National Ocean Sciences Bowl Facebook page
