Partners for Progress and Prosperity Award (P3)


Established in 2014 by ACS Past-President Marinda Li Wu and will be awarded in the ACS Northwest Region 2015 to 2019.


To encourage and recognize successful and exemplary partnerships, the Partners for Progress and Prosperity (P3) Award was established as an award to be given by Local ACS Sections, ACS International Chapters, and ACS Regional Meetings. The P3 Award recognizes partnerships among industry, academia, government, small businesses and/or other organizations that result in impactful outcomes for the chemical enterprise. The award celebrates those that contribute to the health of their local and regional economy and the corporate leadership for its advancement of a healthy economy in the chemical enterprise.


At the Regional Meeting level, the award consists of a special Partner for Progress and Prosperity (P3) silver/gold medallion plus a framed certificate of recognition (one for each Partner representing an entity or organization) plus a $1,000 grant to further the activities for which the award is made. The NORM 2018 Awards Committee will select the Regional P3 Award winners. The regional awardees will then become nominees for the Global P3 Award to be selected by the International Activities Committee of the National ACS.


The nomination deadline is April 30, 2018.
