The Eastern New York Local Section will sponsor an Illustrated Poem Contest for students in grades K-12. The topic of the poem and illustration must be related to the 2020 theme “Sticking with Chemistry.” No poem may be longer than 40 words. Each poem must be illustrated and on an unlined sheet of paper no larger than 11″ x 14″. Any poem with more than 40 words or larger than 11″ x 14″ will not be considered for the contest. In the interest of safety, all poems must be scanned and submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 20. If you are unable to scan your poem or have any questions, please email email@example.com. Prizes will be awarded locally to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in four age categories. All 1st place winners will advance to the ACS National Illustrated Poem Contest. Please refer to the attached 2020 Illustrated Poem Flyer for further details. Contest rules and past winners may be found at:
If you would like to submit a video for inclusion in the online event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate NCW 2020!
