ESO at JHS 2020 Details Now Available
The Elementary Science Olympiad at Jacksonville High School enters its 27th year of competitions in 2020 as we look to welcome up to 30 teams and over 500 student participants to Jacksonville on Saturday, February 22nd. Read over the ESO at JHS 2020 Details for complete information on this year's Olympiad, a premier elementary education event in Alabama.

ESO at JHS Changes for 2020
The Alabama Science Olympiad is looking to expand the excitement of elementary-level competitions to new schools across our state. As a result, the ESO at JHS is supporting the effort to create more manageable competitions that new hosts can launch in 2020 and beyond (perhaps one closer to your town!). In 2020, the ESO at JHS will feature 22 total events, down from 24 in 2019. We will continue to permit up to 24 students, including up to 8 sixth graders, as part of the team.

ESO 2020 Set for February 22nd, Register Your Team Now
The Elementary Science Olympiad at JHS will return to JHS for its 27th annual competition on Saturday, February 22nd. Register your team for this year's competition now here at esoatjhs.org. Visit our ESO at JHS 2020 Team Registration page to complete our web form. View our ESO 2020 Registered Teams page, updated weekly, to confirm your registration with JHS. We will continue to use the 6th edition ESO Coaches Manual, so returning teams will not need a new copy. Returning teams need to register by November 1st to hold onto their spot in the competition field. New teams will be admitted after that point, if space is available.

Up Next: Competition Schedule, Group Assignments
We're hard at work this month finalizing the details for ESO 2020. Look for the overall competition schedule online in October. And, after the close of registration, we'll have group assignments posted in mid November.
