Each year, the host school provides a list of Day Trip and Wet Lab events. Due to the popularity of these events, a lottery will be conducted to determine the participants in Wet Labs and Day Trips with limited space. Each entrant will have a chance to win 1 spot in a day trip or wet lab out of the (up to) 4 they ranked in the lottery. Participation in the lottery does not guarantee you a day trip or wet lab spot. Lottery selections will be drawn randomly, taking into consideration your designated rank and the number of spots available. The Lottery for Wet Labs and Day Trips will be closed on 11/30/2018 4:00:00 PM CST and the lottery will be processed to fill the initial spaces for each event. If an entrant wins an event in the lottery, the cost of that event will be processed on their credit card used during their initial registration. Each entrant will be notified if they did or did not receive a wet lab or day trip through the lottery by 12/07/2018 that will contain your receipt for the winning lottery event. If you do not win a spot in the wet lab or day trip lottery, you will have another opportunity to purchase additional events on a first come first serve basis when registration opens on 12/07/2018 at 9:00am CST.
