Memo Text

Applications are now being accepted from high school seniors in the class of 2019 to represent Arkansas at the 2019 National Youth Science Camp (NYSCamp).  Two students from each state, Washington, D.C, and 8 countries will attend the all-expenses-paid program, which is held from June 27 through July 20, 2019.
