Petition for US Postage Stamp to Celebrate International Year of Chemistry 2011


Get Involved in the ACS Celebration of International Year of Chemistry 2011:
Support the U.S. Commemorative Stamp Campaign

This is NOT a proposed design :-)  But please sign the petition anyway!

The ACS is working to urge the United States Postal Service to adopt chemistry as a theme for a commemorative stamp in 2011 in view of the contributions of chemistry to the well-being of humankind in the U.S. and worldwide and on the occasion of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry.

The USPS gets 50,000 subject requests per year and awards only 25 commemorative stamps per year - Your efforts to contribute to this cause this year are very important and very much appreciated!

How to get involved:

  • Visit to download the petition
  • Distribute the petition for signature among your colleagues, students, and friends (all chemists and friends of chemistry are encouraged to sign!)
  • Mail or FAX completed petitions to the ACS Office of International Activities no later than November 1. (see petition for fax number and address)
