The National Ocean Sciences Bowl was launched in 1998 — the International Year of the Ocean — by the Consortium for Oceanographic Research and Education. Managed by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership since 2007, NOSB continues its important objectives in creating an ocean-literate society. Nation-wide, there are now 25 competition regions.
