This year, we had about 1,000 students representing 39 high schools throughout Los Angeles County take the Local ACS Exam in March. Arcadia High School finished first overall while North Hollywood High School finished first for first year students. The winners of the local exam were invited to participate in the National Exam on April 21st at California State University, Dominguez Hills for a chance to be part of the 50th International Chemistry Olympiad (ICHO), which will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia and Prague, Czech Republic. These students, as well as the top performers and teachers from each school of 10 or more participants, will be honored at our annual Educational Awards Banquet.

Reservations: We will have an All American Cookout Buffet featuring all beef hamburgers and hot dogs, garden burgers and chicken breast served with baked beans, corn on the cob, green salad, potato salad and brownies and cookies for dessert. The cost of the dinner is $20 per person or $15 for students, cash or check at the door.
