CCEW Illustrated Poem Contest Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the 2018 CCEW Illustrated Poem Contest!

As part of CCEW 2018, students from grades K-12 were invited to share their interpretation of this year's theme, “Dive into Marine Chemistry”, in the form of illustrated poems. This year, 43 ACS local sections submitted entries for the contest - a CCEW Illustrated Poem Contest record! 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!
