The International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) is an annual competition for the world"s most talented chemistry students at the secondary school level. Nations around the world send a team of four students, who are tested on their knowledge of chemistry and skills in a five-hour laboratory practical and five-hour written theoretical examination.
The first IChO was held in Prague, former Czechoslovakia ( now the Czech Republic) in 1968. The event has been held every year since then, with the exception of 1971.
