Outreach Volunteers of the Year

In an effort to recognize the immeasurable outreach efforts made by ACS local section volunteers, the Committee of Community Activities (CCA) established the Outreach Volunteers of the Year award program. Each local section can recognize one individual annually for demonstrating extraordinary outreach volunteer service within the section. Volunteers are only eligible to be recognized once every five years.

In recognition of their exemplary outreach efforts, Outreach Volunteers of the Year receive a certificate and gift during a meeting or event hosted by the local section. The awardees are also recognized during the annual ChemLuminary Awards at the Fall National Meeting & Exposition and in an issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN).
