Chemluminary Awards

 

This award recognition program gives ACS members an opportunity to recognize outstanding accomplishments, achievements or service for those who have made a positive impact on everyday life. The awards are given by various committees within ACS at the Fall National meeting.  These awards were first given in 1999.  Prior to that year Phoenix Awards were given for similar recognition.   MORE

National ACS awards are conferred after the year for which the award was actually won.  To disambiguate, we give here the year of the actual activity cited in the award, not the year in which the award was conferred.

Each Local Section and Division nominated for an award is invited to present a poster to highlight their achievements receiving nomination.  Recent posters may be viewed here.
