ESO at JHS 2021 Plans Still To Be Determined
Our ESO at JHS team is exploring all options for our 2021 competition, based on current health and safety guidance related to the ongoing pandemic response. We are cautiously optimistic that we can find a format that is appropriate for our elementary-level participants and suitable for the conditions. We will be working with our Alabama Science Olympiad and local partners in the coming weeks. Please look for more information on this year's ESO online in October.
