Dear Fellow Chemistry Teacher:

My name is Andrew Chan; I am a lab instructor with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Regina and the District Coordinator for Saskatchewan for the Canadian Chemistry Contest.  I am writing to invite the chemistry students in your school to participate in the 2018 Canadian Chemistry Contest (CCC) and Canadian Chemistry Olympiad (CCO) National Selection Exam. The 2018 CCC and CCO National Selection Exam will be held on April 16th, 2018.

The CCC and the CCO National Selection Exam are a nationwide contest aimed towards the top 10% of high school students in their penultimate year (typically Grade 11). The national winner as well as the top three regional winners are recognized and receive a cash prize.

The CCC is a multi-part contest consisting of multiple choice and written response questions.  The CCO National Selection Exam is written as part of the national team selection process.  The selection exam consists of the same multiple choice test as the CCC in additional to a different written response questions than the CCC.  Either test is completed in 2.5 hours, or 4 hours if students wish to complete both the CCC and CCO parts of the exam.

If you would like to have more information, I have attached two documents that provide more detail about the contests.

[Good afternoon,

I’d like to first introduce myself. I’m the marketing and communications specialist at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology(SAIT) for the School of Health and Public Safety.]

[The reason I’m reaching out to you today is we have a number of programs offered at SAIT that have interprovincial agreements in place offering reserved seats for residents of Saskatchewan.]

[We are looking for additional ways to ensure that individuals in Saskatchewan are aware of these opportunities and disseminate information within the province [for] individuals who are looking at the career options available to them. In particular our Nuclear Medicine Technology program.

We have a number of materials that can be provided in soft copy versions, which I’ve included here, and would be happy to share hardcopy versions should you want this format.

Thank you,

Adam Thurston
