A great way to participate in National Chemistry week is to spread the word about our illustrated poem contest. Students are invited to create poems and illustrations around the theme, “The Healing Power of Chemistry”.  Local submissions are judged based on grade categories and local winners advance to the national level where ACS awards cash prizes. To enter, both the poem and an entry form need to be submitted to [email protected] no later than October 29, 2023, 11:59 pm ET. Poem Contest rules and further details can be found at the following link:
