As part of Chemists Celebrate Earth Day 2007
and in recognition of
its theme, "Recycling - Chemistry Can!", the American Chemical
Society sponsored an illustrated haiku contest for students in
Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students were invited to produce an
illustrated haiku poem demonstrating the theme "Recycling - Chemistry
Can!" that would reflect some aspect of the chemistry of recycling:
materials, processes, or uses for recycled materials.
for more information and the results of the ACS National
Local ACS sections were invited to run the contest in their
