Each year, Midland ACS sponsors Earth Day events in April and May that usually include a multi-station
expo, science cafes or seminars, and an Illustrated Poem contest for grades K-12. Our collaborators are
typically Midland Center for the Arts and Midland Volunteers for Recycling, although many other
organizations are also invited to take part.
The National ACS CCEW (“Chemists Celebrate Earth Week”) theme tends to be the focus of these
activities. The following are some CCEW themes:

2020: Protecting our Planet Through Chemistry (50th Anniversary of Earth Day!)
2021: Reducing Our Footprint With Chemistry
