Orca Bowl Sponsors

Orca Bowl is made possible through the support of UW’s College of the Environment, Washington Sea Grant, NOSB as well as many other generous sponsors. In light of recent federal budget cuts, our fundraising efforts are more critical than ever. By becoming an Orca Bowl/NOSB sponsor, you are encouraging and supporting the next generation of marine scientists, policy makers, teachers, explorers, researchers, technicians, and informed citizens to consider and appreciate the ocean on a regional and global scale.

How You Can Help

  1. Provide funds to assist with travel and lodging costs for teams and their coaches – teams travel from all over the state to participate.
  2. Help cover costs for meals for teams and volunteers – young minds at work need good, nourishing food to fuel them through the competition.
  3. Donate funds toward general event support – for example, venue rental, printing, supplies, and A/V rentals.
  4. Donate study resources – marine-related textbooks, ocean science literature, and so forth to support the months of preparation that teams undertake; or fun and relevant mementos that will be used for team prize bags, such as water bottles, tee-shirts, pens/pencils, and key chains. Each team that participates receives a prize bag for all of their efforts.
