Appreciation of IYC activities

Many countries are actively participating in IYC activities. I propose to select three countries who perform best and offer first, second and third place awards to them.

I agree with Mr. Hettigedera, Chairman National Secretariat Sri Lanka on the issue of providing an award for the countries actively involved in IYC activities. Probably another 5 countries could be selected for the next 5 places.

The funds thus received can be used for the advancement of chemistry in their own countries. eg. Improvement of facilities (lab facilities, books etc )in less privileged rural schools for teaching the subject of chemistry.

Topic: competition Audience: general public, teachers, scientists, school children, educators, professional chemists, primary schools, iyc enthusiasts, international, researchers, global
