Cut & Paste: New ChemLuminary Award in Sustainability
The ChemLuminary Award for Outstanding Sustainability Activities is the newest addition to the annual local section awards, and it is sponsored by the ACS Committee on Environmental Improvement (CEI). The award recognizes a local section that has introduced a new and outstanding program promoting sustainability at the local level. The award recipient will have demonstrated that the program educates people about sustainability, enhances awareness or promotes discussions between society members and the general public about sustainability, or encourages sustainable activities in the community or local businesses. All local sections are encouraged to self-nominate their sustainability activities for this new award via the section’s 2010 Annual Report due February 15, 2011.
