    Will there be any chidon-sponsored events, such as a shabbaton, preceding the finals? Or should out-of-towners make their own arrangements?

    • Everyone is expected to make his/her own plans for Shabbat. Several years ago, we offered a Shabbat program for out-of-towners. However, it was cancelled due to insufficient registration, which led us to conclude that most people prefer to make their own plans with friends or family in NJ/NY. If anyone has difficulty finding a place to stay for shabbat, the can contact us, and we will try to assist with finding accommodations.

    How many different regions are there? Is there a way to learn which other cities are in our region?

    • The regions are not set until after the first exam, since the number and location of participating schools can vary from year to year, so we have to see where kids actually took the Chidon before we can divide the regions. Typically, each region has 3-4 schools. The New York area will generally have multiple regions due to the large number of schools there, while the rest of the US will normally only have 3-4 schools in larger geographical areas (e.g. West Coast or Midwest).

    I think you may find opinion has changed and out of towners might like a shabbaton preceding,

  4. David Waghalter says:

    Especially with the recent influx of west-coasters.

  5. Sheryl Neuman says:

    Yes, it would be nice to have a Shabbaton beforehand. It is more difficult for us on the West Coast. We would come!

  6. Moshe says:

    For Middle School will the National Finals include high school material

  7. Chaim Ginzberg says:

    Is the national section of the competition being postponed due to coronavirus? I am a competitor who made the nationals this year, and I would really appreciate it if I could have some information on the topic.

    Thanks so much
