Award for SLCC students recognizes fundraising and outreach efforts within the community.

Salt Lake Community College’s student affiliate chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS) won the Outstanding Chapter Award for 2017/2018, the highest ACS honor bestowed on student chapters.

The award will be presented at the ACS national conference in Orlando, Florida, in spring 2019. It also will be announced in Chemical and Engineering News, the official ACS magazine. In addition, the chapter was awarded the ACS Green Chemistry award and designated a Green Chemistry Chapter for the 2018/2019 school year.

The chapter in the past year raised nearly $18,000 through service projects for six local charities; visited 14 elementary schools, providing hands-on chemical demonstrations to over 1,000 students; and presented undergraduate research at the ACS National Meeting in New Orleans, among other accomplishments.
