Creo Achievement and CIC 3rd-Year Awards presented to top Vancouver region Chemistry students.

In order to honour top chemistry students and promote chemical education at public post-secondary institutions that teach chemistry or chemical technology within the Vancouver CIC Local Section, the Creo Achievement Award in Chemistry and the CIC 3rd-Year Chemistry Award were recently presented at the Annual Dinner Meeting. Each department was invited to nominate a worthy student, preferably one who had completed two chemistry courses at the 2nd-year level to receive the Creo Award. The awardees were invited to attend the Local Section's dinner meeting (see accompanying article), where they were publicly awarded their prizes by Terry Peel, MCIC, of Creo. The Vancouver Local Section is grateful to Creo Inc., a Vancouver-area technology company that employs chemists, for its generous support of these student awards.

The CIC 3rd-Year Award in Chemistry was given to the top students in 3rd-year chemistry at Simon Fraser University (SFU) and the University of British Columbia (UBC), respectively. Daniel Leznoff, MCIC, Vancouver CIC Local Section Chair, presented the awards to Ming Wai Emily Tsang (SFU) and Meghan Dureen (UBC) at the same CIC Dinner Meeting.

Congratulations to all the awardees on their outstanding achievement and we wish them the best of success in their continuing studies.

Daniel Leznoff, MCIC
