Local Section Student Chapter Member Honored by American Chemical Society

Each year, the Society Committee on Education (SOCED) selects ACS Student Chapters to receive special recognition on the basis of their programs and activities, as described in their chapter reports. Awards are classified as outstanding, commendable, and honorable mention. Chapters that do not qualify for these awards receive a certificate of achievement for meritorious service.

For the 2021-2022 academic year, SOCED awarded 55 chapters outstanding, 86 chapters commendable, and 79 chapters honorable mention. Plus 36 student chapters are also receiving a green chemistry award for successfully completing green chemistry activities throughout the year. The award-winning student chapters are listed below.
