Each year as part of National Chemistry Week (NCW) activities, the American Chemical Society (ACS) sponsors an illustrated poem contest for students in Kindergarten – 12th grades. Schools are encouraged to have a contest within the school as part of their classroom studies and submit one entry per grade category. CSW will be sponsoring a local NCW Illustrated Poem contest. The National illustrated poem contest is focused on “Where’s the Chemistry?” Participants are encouraged to explore topics related to the chemistry associated with glues and adhesives. Write and illustrate a poem using the National Chemistry Week theme, “Fast or Slow … Chemistry Makes It Go!” Your poem can be in anystyle as long as it is no more than 40 words. All entries must be received no later than Sunday, October 24, 2021. Entries should be submitted using the ACS NCW Illustrated Poem entry website (https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/outreach/ncw/plan-an-event/illustrated-poem-contest.html). Additional information on the contest, as well as NCW, is available on the ACS web site (www.acs.org/ncw).
