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.
