OSBRC 5th Annual Challenge Leaderboards

Point scores are recorded as an "estimate" when submitted through the online portal by a participating school. A score will only be recorded as "actual" when Raw Materials Company collects, sorts and processes full drums. At that point, RMC will adjust a school's point scores based on the actual weight.

All final scores will be based on actual weight. For more information, please see our Official Challenge Rules.
