2020 U. S. NATIONAL CHEMISTRY OLYMPIAD
The New York Local Section of the American Chemical Society proudly participates in the 2020
High school chemistry students who compete in the USNCO by taking the U. S. National Chemistry Olympiad examination are eligible to be selected as members of the United States team for the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO). Every year since 1984 the U.S. has sent a team of four students to compete with teams from approximately fifty countries in the IChO. The students participate in both theoretical and laboratory examinations over several days. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded to the best performers and the IChO provides students the opportunity to interact with their peers from other countries.
The local examinations will be held in March 2020 and this year the international event will be held in Istanbul Turkey on July 6-15, 2020.
