Hosting of SJChO
Schools with more than 100 participants in Round 1 are encouraged to hold the competition in their own school. Invigilators from hosting schools will be given a token of appreciation. Information for hosts can be found here.
The organiser also welcomes schools to host the practical round (Round 2). We hope to provide SJChO olympiad experience to as many students as possible. Therefore without support from schools to host the practical round, this will not be possible and the organisers will have to limit the number of students going to round 2. Please let us know if you can support. School will be reimbursed for the cost of chemicals. The organiser will invite teachers from selected schools to invigilate in Round 2. It will be a great experience for teachers. Laboratory technician as well as invigilators will be given a token of appreciation. Information for hosts can be found here.
