ACS James Bryant Conant Awards

The national ACS James Bryant Conant award was established in 1965 to encourage and recognize outstanding high school chemistry teachers.  Candidates are chosen based upon evidence of high quality teaching, ability to challenge and inspire, extracurricular activities that support their work and pursuit of continued improvement of their role as an educator. The award will be sponsored by the Journal of Chemical Education and ChemEd X with a permanent endowment beginning in 2017. .
