Winners of cash awards and honorable mention awards in previous years are not eligible to compete for Ashdown recognition; however, they may compete to become eligible for the Olympiad Examination. Cash awards will be given to the students with the top five (5) scores. Honorable mention awards will be given to five (5) first-year and five (5) second-year students with the next highest scores.
In addition, each winning student will be invited, along with his/her teacher, to be guests of the Northeastern Section at its May dinner meeting and will be given appropriate recognition.
Top scorers in the Ashdown Examination will be eligible to take the qualifying exam for the Unites States Chemistry Olympiad Team. Addition details can be found in the information packet.
