Chemists Celebrate the Earth Week

Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW) is a community-based program of the American Chemical Society (ACS). This annual program unites ACS local sections, student chapters, technical divisions, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating the positive role that chemistry plays in the world. CCEW occurs annually during the week of Earth Day, which is April 22.

The Omaha section of ACS celebrate Earth week by participating in an outreach event at Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum and by organizing Illustrated poem contest for K-12 students.
