Call for Nominations
January 20, 2021 (Jay Eylem, Lynn Hogue)
This past year has been difficult, and we all have faced many challenges. Everyone could use some positivity in their lives. The Cincinnati Section of the ACS has several awards that are given annually, and it is more important than ever to recognize individuals for their outstanding contributions to advance chemistry and inspire future generations. We encourage you to recognize these individuals.
Chemist and Technician of the Year
The Cincinnati Local Section of the American Chemical Society is requesting nominations for Chemist and Technician of the Year Award. These awards recognize outstanding individuals who work in chemistry-related fields and have made significant contributions to chemistry related-fields, society and the community.
The Chemist of the Year is required to be a local ACS member in good standing. Nomination requires two letters of recommendation and a CV.
The Technician/Chemical Technologist of the Year is not required to be an ACS member. One letter of recommendation and a CV should be submitted for consideration.
Nominations and letters of recommendation for these are due by February 20, 2021. Awards will be given at our March Cincinnati ACS meeting. Please contact Jay Eylem for more information or to forward nominations.
Excellence in Teaching Awards
Each year the Cincinnati section recognizes outstanding local teachers with our Excellence in Teaching Awards. We are seeking teachers who make a difference in students’ lives through excellent, innovative teaching methods, who encourage students to pursue science, and who have shown a dedication to their profession. A High School Chemistry teacher, a Middle School and Primary Science teacher are eligible, and each level will be awarded separately.
If you know of a teacher who should be recognized, send their name, school, and school district and why you think they should be nominated to Lynn Hogue. We will pursue letter of recommendation. Nominations are due by March 15, 2021. These awards will be given at the April Cincinnati ACS meeting.
