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 2022-2023 academic year, SOCED awarded 71 chapters outstanding, 122 chapters commendable, and 135 chapters honorable mention. Plus 21 student chapters are also receiving a green chemistry award for successfully completing 3 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.

Congratulations to these chapters for a job well done!
