All students, coaches, judges, and NJCO support team members will be getting a lovely T-shirt as a commemoration of this event!  Please contact us if your T-shirt order did not arrive and we'll send it ASAP.


ATTENTION HS TEACHERS:  Are you interested in having one or more teams from your high school compete in the 3rd Annual Virtual NJCO?  Please email:  mgulotta@njacs.org for more information if you're not already on our mailing list!    If you're not in New Jersey, that's fine!  We always accept teams from Pennsylvania and New York when we have live in-person events, but we'd like to invite teams from around the United States if they are interested in joining us for this virtual chemistry event!


ATTENTION POTENTIAL VOLUNTEERS:  Are you a chemist by training or practice?  Do you want to be involved with an event that serves up to 250 high school students each year, by contributing your knowledge as a judge or collaborator to develop and fine-tune our events?  Email:  mgulotta@njacs.org  for more information - we'd love for you to join us.  Volunteering can be as little as 5 hours after attending a few brief meetings, or more time if you have more available.  College students can volunteer as well!
