CHEMISTRY OLYMPIAD COMPETITION

The U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad (USNCO) program is a chemistry competition for high school students. The purpose of the competition is to stimulate young people to achieve excellence in chemistry. The American Chemical Society has sponsored the program since 1984. Local Chemistry Olympiad competitions are held each year in March. Top-scoring students are nominated for the National Competition.

We encourage all high school students in the ACS Joliet area (Will, Kankakee, Kendall, Grundy, and LaSalle Counties) to participate. For more information, contact us at ACSJoliet@gmail.com.
