High School Chemistry Contest

About the Contest

The Pittsburgh Annual Secondary School Chemistry Contest is a major activity of the Chemical Education Committee.

Beginning in 1945, the Pittsburgh Section of the American Chemical Society has sponsored an annual contest for secondary schools to recognize outstanding achievement by the students and their teachers as well as encouraging interest in chemistry among school students. The contest is also used to qualify students interested in participating in the International Chemistry Olympics and to identify students for scholarships. The exam is administered to students from schools in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia.

Awards are presented to the winners at the Annual Awards Dinner attended by students, parents, and chemistry teachers. Awards will include scholarships from the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP), Duquesne University.
