NCW encourages ACS members and science enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. ACS local sections, schools, businesses, and individuals are invited to organize or participate in events in their communities with a common goal: to promote the value of chemistry in everyday life.
NCW 2018 will be celebrated October 21-27, 2018 with the theme, "Chemistry is Out of This World." The NCW 2018 edition of Celebrating Chemistry and other online resources are now available.
Proclamations are an easy way to start a relationship with your lawmakers and to support chemistry. Take action and write to your local leaders asking them to support chemistry by recognizing NCW using our “Request a Proclamation” feature.
