Students from each of these schools competed in a multitude of STEM activities that included astronomy, chemistry, biology, forensics, geology, mathematics, engineering and more.

Richmond Hill High School took first place overall in the Olympiad, with Southeast Bulloch High School in second, Valwood High School in third, H.V. Jenkins High School in fourth and Metter High School in fifth. Every school had team members who won medals in multiple individual events.
