NMSC 2020: Notice of cancellation

March 13, 2020

Dear NMSC Participants,

KSEA HQ has made the difficult decision, after careful consideration and comprehensive evaluation of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, to cancel the National Math and Science Competition (NMSC) 2020, originally scheduled on April 18. 2020.

KSEA has been closely monitoring the rapid domestic and worldwide COVID-19-related developments during the last several weeks. This decision was made with careful consideration of all potential factors impacting the participants and their families partaking in NMSC 2020.

The health and safety of all NMSC participants and chapter constituents are KSEA’s highest priorities. We believe the decision to cancel NMSC 2020 is the appropriate action to protect our NMSC participants from potential exposure to the coronavirus.

We thank all our KSEA members, participants, and parents for their patience and support at this time. NMSC registration fees will be fully refunded. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to everyone impacted by this global health crisis.


Jun-Seok Oh

President of KSEA
