You're confusing it with MTBO. Maybe you want to do that instead. I hear the national team is looking for juniors.

School Champs are never on Eventor.

Why are schools champs not on eventor?
If I go to the event calendar or results pages on the website I don't see any mention of schools champs at all.
Surely we should be trying to make it as easy as possible for anyone interested in the event to find out about it and also notice all our other events while they are there. The last couple of years the results have been hidden away in an obscure corner of the website, posted days after anyone who did the event has lost interest and then all links removed 6 months later so you can only find them with a search.

Really, you actually managed to find them? I don't think I've ever found the results for the school champs. I looked up the SSWA website this week and the only reference I can find to orienteering is for the champion school over the last two decades and also the attendance figures (which are skewed prior to 2016 due to the combined primary/secondary champs).

I thought OA was encouraging all states to put up all results, so they can count participation

We certainly are.

While it's not practical for entries to be done through Eventor, there is no reason why an event for the School Champs cannot be created, and results posted there. A little bit of extra work no doubt, but as Eventor is the results database for OA (and OWA) it should be done.

The results should also appear on the OWA Results page for heaven's sake!
