Scopes: Skills Ontario Competition - Elementary

Contest scopes are provided to give teachers and competitors an outline of what each specific contest entails.  All scopes for the current competition year should be posted before the end of January, but if the scope you are looking for is not posted yet, you may review "Past Scopes" to get an idea of what each contest entails.

Scopes are the main resource required to prepare for your contest, so it is very important that you review your contest scope carefully in advance of the competition.  The contest scopes include the following information:

  • Date and location of your contest
  • Agenda for your contest
  • Tools supplied and tools you need to bring with you
  • Skills required to be successful in the contest

Please take note of the “Last Updated” date to ensure you have reviewed the most recent version of the scope.


All contests require an online submission of the Competitor Safety Checklist following the end of their contest (or with their project if the contest has an Online Submission). This is mandatory, no matter the contest and no matter the location in which the competitor is competing from. If this is NOT submitted, the competitor will be disqualified and not judged for their project.

You can download the Safety Checklist here.
