Mallory Hinks, AirUCI grad student in the Nizkorodov group, was awarded the 2016 ACS Chemistry Champions contest on August 22, 2016 during the ACS national meeting in Philadelphia.  This competition gives younger chemists an opportunity to develop and enhance their communication skills. Participants in the competition range from undergraduate students to professional scientists, from both the U.S. and abroad. The contestants submitted a two- to three-minute video of themselves describing chemistry concepts or their own research in a way that’s accessible to the general public.  Read the article
Mallory will receive a trip to Washington, D.C. to network with professional science communications staff at ACS and possibly attend a briefing on Capitol Hill; she will host an ACS “Reactions” video; and she will join the National Academy of Sciences’ Science & Entertainment Exchange.  Way to go, Mallory!  Watch her video
