Hey, just wondering if this was a typo or not—the first post says to send your resource to summer@scioly.org but send questions to summerscioly@scioly.org, are these different on purpose? Thanks!

The email to use is only summer@scioly.org, thanks for pointing out the typo (it's fixed now).

As for the notes, do they have to be typed up online and then emailed? Or can they be scanned written notes on loose-leaf?

We need to be able to read them / access them in a PDF. Please keep in mind two common issues with scanning handwritten notes: They may not be legible (then we can't read them...we'll tell you, but usually it's on you to fix it), and they can be difficult to edit / correct. As long as this isn't a bother for you, it's fine.

When writing a test, am I allowed to get an image from the internet? When I press an image on Google, the words, "Images may be subject to copyright", is shown below. I am wondering if I'm allowed to use those images because I don't want to take someone's work, and get the credit.

Don't worry about citing images for a test. There are a variety of ways to format things, but citing images / sources particularly is an issue for notes. It's not necessary, but some notes need it to be more organized / useful. The only way you'd get in trouble that I can think of is using a photo from a textbook not online, which doesn't sound like the worry.

Also, sorry for late reply, uploading of resources / users, etc...was away recently. On that note, I'm back, so keep questions, submissions, etc going:D. Hope people are having fun summers!

Hi there, I have a question. I have a cheat sheet for Heredity which should be good for Genetics Division B. The problem is it's only 3,372 words and 14 images. The cheat sheet is only 2 pages for the event so should I extend it/change it into notes and add more or leave it as is? Thanks!

Great question! You will probably have to extend to 7k words, maybe 6k. There's some flexibility, but 7k usually gets submissions closer to completion (pending quality, etc). You CAN go shorter with good / original content, like your own images / tables (example SSSS notes on wiki event pages).

Changing to non-cheatsheet notes usually makes the content more clear for review / use. We handle cheatsheets case by case because they can be more difficult to review (e.g. Small text that's hard to scan), and people have complained that they don't want to share them (in the past, people thought they had to share all the info from their cheatsheets or making their notes were basically like sharing their cheatsheets...fair enough, not the point of notes then).

Unrelated: We've gotten quite a few submissions, keep up the amazing work as always! I can give more specific updates/some numbers upon request, but we haven't gotten submissions for (note you should do whatever event you want to work on, but sometimes people are curious about this)...
