Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED) 2013 Illustrated Poem Contest Winners
Excellent Poems Teach Us to Embrace Our Earth
Congratulations to the winners of the CCED 2013 Illustrated Poem Contest!
CCED is a community-based annual event that takes place on or around April 22 each year. CCED unites ACS local sections, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating the positive role of chemistry and raising environmental awareness.
As part of the CCED 2013 celebration, students from grades K-12 were invited to share their interpretation of this year's theme, “Our Earth: Handle with Care!”, in the form of illustrated poems.
Winners at the local section level qualified for the national contest. At the national level, first- and second-place prizes were awarded in four categories.
Thank you to all schools and local sections that participated!
