Any individual, except a member of the award committee or a currently enrolled student of the nominee, may submit one nomination or seconding letter in any given year.
The Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society comprises most of Los Angeles County, bordered by the geography of the LA Basin as follows:
- East border: the Covina Hills. If you are near Mt. SAC, The Claremont Colleges, or Cal Poly Pomona, you probably belong to the San Gorgonio Section.
- North border: the Southern California Section extends into the Antelope Valley area, and includes Palmdale and Lancaster. There is some overlap here with the Mojave Section.
- Northwest border: Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park are part of the Southern California Section, as well as the Simi Valley area of Ventura County. Other parts of Ventura County all the way north well past San Luis Obispo are part of the Los Padres Section.
If you live outside the boundaries, but want to be included as a member of the Southern California Section, you may make it so by contacting the national ACS headquarters in writing.
Nominations must be received by the end of the business day, November 15, 2017.
Nominating documents may be submitted via email to the Chair of the Outstanding Chemistry Teacher Committee.
