Chemistry Olympiad 2013 ACS Cleveland Section

I am in the process of planning the  Cleveland ACS Chemistry Olympiad local competition.  It is set for March 16, 2013 at Cleveland State University.  This year I hope to see more local schools participate.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students and teachers.  More information about the chemistry olympiad is avaialble on the ACS website.

A school may enter a total of 12 students; only four second year and eight first-year, for participation in the Local Chemistry Olympiad.  A $20.00 fee permits a school to enter up to four students and an additional eight students may be added to the competition for  a cost of $2.00 per student.

Results of the local examination will be sent to participating teachers by e-mail.   Based on these results, the top eleven students, with a maximum of two from the same school, will have the privilege of taking the National Chemistry Olympiad Examination and Practical. The National Exam and Lab Practical will be administered on Friday, April 12, 2013 at Cleveland State University.

Following the National Exam and Practical, twenty students from the U.S. will be selected to attend a two-week training camp at the U.S. Air Force Academy to prepare for the international competition.   Based on performance at the camp, four students will be selected to represent the United States in the 45th  Chemistry Olympiad in Moscow, Russia, July  15 – 24, 2012.

Teachers can register their students here.
