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 local section meeting or another event. The program and awardees will be recognized in an issue of Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN) later this year.

In 2018, ACS recognized 52 awardees. To read some of the wonderful contributions made by the individuals being acknowledged, follow the links below.
