Congratulations to the winners of the National Chemistry Week (NCW) 2011 Illustrated Poem Contest!


NCW is a community-based annual event, uniting ACS local sections, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating the importance of chemistry to our quality of life. This year's NCW took place October 16-22, 2011.


As part of the NCW 2011 celebration, students from grades K-12 were invited to share their interpretation of this year's theme through illustrated poems, “Chemistry—Our Health, Our Future!”


Thank you to all schools and local sections that participated.

NCW may be over… but the competition in the ACS Student Chapter NCW Video Contest is just heating up.  Check out all 10 entries and vote for your favorite by “liking” them in the ACS Network - you could help an ACS Student Chapter win $500!


Hurry, voting ends on November 30th
