The Einstein Event Champion Award will be presented to students who win a 1st place medal in any event at the Macomb tournament. 


This applies to the 1st place winners in both the K-5 and K-6 division.  As such, for most events there will be 4 students who win this award.  For a few events, up to 6 students may win.

Young arthropod experts will enjoy walking through the Wildlife Interpretive Gallery , and being surrounded by hundreds of free-flying butterflies. 


Be sure to wear your Science Olympiad shirt. If anyone asks, explain that your family is there because of a very special award that you've earned!

In addition to other benefits, your membership pays entrance and parking fees. You will bypass crowds when you use the "members only" entrance.

No matter what events you participated in, no matter what you’re interested in, you will be mesmerized by this collection of great exhibits and activities. There is much too much to see and do in a single day.



If you are an Einstein Award winner, congratulations! Make the most of this opportunity that you’ve earned. 


If you do not win this year, you may still want to visit this amazing museum. Wear your Science Olympiad shirt, and be quick to boast about your Science Olympiad experience.


The fine print: in circumstances where a student or students of a family are the champion of multiple events, we will not award duplicate family memberships to the same family.
