Since 1987, the Michigan Social Studies Olympiad has increased student interest in social studies education, encouraged a greater appreciation for this subject area and recognized the very important role played by social studies educators in our Michigan schools.

The goals of this special event are to increase student and teacher interest in the study of social studies, to offer contests that lead to improvements in social studies curriculum and instructional practices, to provide opportunities for students and teachers to gain individual and team recognition for academic accomplishments, and to provide opportunities for the development of positive public relations between social studies educators and the community.
