Every spring, high school students in the Georgia Local Section participate in the United States National Chemistry Olympiad (USNCO) competition. The program is intended to encourage American youth to achieve excellence in chemistry and is a multi-tiered process with competitions at the local, national and international level. See the results of the 2020 Chemistry Olympiad.
It’s important to remember that we are a community. Connected first by our humanity, and second by our love of chemistry, your local section is filled with members eager to support others in times of need. If you have any needs during this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can always reach out to members of our leadership team or by emailing email@example.com.

A note about our scheduled events: Out of the clear need for social distancing, all previously scheduled events at this time have been postponed or shifted to a digital format. If you have signed up to volunteer or attend an ACS Georgia event, you are encouraged to contact the organizer of that event for additional details.
We will provide updates with relevant and timely information when we determine our course of action on how to engage our membership and provides valuable services to our community in this unprecedented time. At the end of the day, we are an organization that serves our members.
