Each team may bring one 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper that may contain information on both sides in any form and from any source along with two stand-alone non-programmable, non-graphing calculators.
This event is typically done as a sit-down test. It is also possible to be done in stations, though this is not likely. Teams will be presented with articles, reports, data, charts/graphs, pictures or diagrams and/or written descriptions of public health problems. Teams will then be asked to answer questions, define or compare terms, and otherwise interpret the information they are given. Teams may also be asked to draw conclusions and propose preventive measures.
The topic for 2019 has not been announced.
Teams MUST bring a writing instrument.
High score wins. Points are given based on a scoring rubric that takes into account the difficulty level of questions, accuracy and quality of answers, and use of proper scientific methods.
