The Alabama Section of the American Chemical Society

Chemistry Olympiad

The Alabama Section serves as a local site where students can enter the National Chemistry Olympiad competition. Each year over 10,000 high school students enter local competitions with the desire to win a place on the International Chemistry Olympiad team. This is a great opportunity to test your skills and knowledge in Chemistry. The latest program schedule for the next competition can be found at U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad.

Each year local students participate in the exam (written and lab activities) administered by the Chemistry Olympiad Committee of the Alabama Section.   Craig McClure is the chair of the Alabama Local Section Chemistry Olympiad Committee and can be contacted about the schedule for the local competition. The National Exam Participants are recognized at the Section's Annual Awards Dinner and receive monetary awards.
