Salutes to Excellence

Salutes to Excellence is an outreach program that gives ACS local sections, technical divisions, regional meetings, and national committees an opportunity to underscore outstanding accomplishments or achievements of service by external partners who have made a positive impact on everyday life or who have helped contribute to greater public awareness of chemistry. Since the program began in 2000, more than 500 honorees have received Salutes to Excellence awards.

Program Notes

  • Honorees may be a practitioner of chemistry, product of chemistry or a place of importance in chemistry within their communities.
  • The ACS local section, technical division, regional meeting, or national committee will organize an award ceremony or event to present the commemorative plaque(s) to the honoree(s). All plaques are provided by the Committee on Community Activities and the Office of Science Outreach.
  • The plaque is designed to frame a printed certificate, which should identify the achievement and explain its significance. You may use one of the templates provided, editing it as necessary, or simply create one of your own.
