The Blue Crab Bowl is the Virginia regional competition for the National Ocean Science Bowl (NOSB), an academic tournament for high school students. This event is made possible each year by a partnership between the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary, and the Department of Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University.

Designed to inspire and challenge high school students, the Blue Crab Bowl tests the competitors' knowledge of the marine sciences, covering the breadth of oceanography and maritime disciplines. Virginia's Blue Crab Bowl was among the inaugural NOSB competitions in 1998. To date, it has involved 1,230 of the Commonwealth's brightest science students from 52 public and private schools across Virginia.

In 2013, the Bowl takes place on VIMS' Gloucester Point campus, February 8 and 9. Sixteen teams will compete for honors and prizes and the winning team will go on to face 24 other regional champions at the National Ocean Sciences Bowl Finals in April.
