Competition Deadlines:

Seevak Website Participants:
Schedule of Deadlines 2005-2006 (all dates may be subject to revision by Ms. Freeman, but consider them strict deadlines unless notified otherwise)

There are a number of deadlines that you are required to meet in order to remain in the competition. These are critically important; thus, if you do not meet one of these deadlines, your team is disqualified. I tried to spread these out as logically as possible, and to take into account the end of marking terms, the AP exam schedules, vacations, etc.
