Student Chapter Award Recipients

The Society Committee on Education (SOCED) selects ACS Student Chapters to receive special recognition on the basis of their programs and activities, as described in their chapter reports. Awards are classified as outstanding, commendable, and honorable mention. Chapters that do not qualify for these awards receive a certificate of achievement for meritorious service.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, SOCED awarded 49 chapters outstanding, 74 chapters commendable, and 87 chapters honorable mention. Plus 27 student chapters are also receiving a green chemistry award for successfully completed green chemistry activities throughout the year. The award-winning student chapters are listed below. An asterisk (*) denotes a student chapter that also received a green chemistry award. In addition to the awards listed, Norwich University received a Green Chemistry Award. 

Congratulations to these chapters for a job well done!
