The ACS Society Committee on Education (SOCED) selects student chapters for special recognition on the basis of their programs and activities as described in their annual reports. Awards are classified as outstanding, commendable, and honorable mention.
For the 2008–09 academic year, SOCED has bestowed 35 outstanding, 67 commendable, and 119 honorable mention awards. Plaques will be presented to these chapters during the upcoming ACS national meeting in San Francisco. For each of the outstanding chapters, the award-winning institution, chapter president and report writer, and faculty advisers are listed here, in that order.
The Green Chemistry Institute also recognizes chapters for their activities promoting green chemistry. For 2008–09, 55 chapters were awarded green chemistry chapter awards.
Information on commendable and honorable mention chapters and green chemistry chapters is in the November/December 2009 issue of inChemistry, which is available at www.acs.org/saprogram (click on “inChemistry”).
