Since 2002 we have honored the achievements and promise of the sciences and technologies through our signature event, Heritage Day.
Heritage Day is a celebration: of the awardees’ extraordinary accomplishments, of the remarkable history of science and technology, of fellowship and camaraderie. Hundreds of people join us for Heritage Day each May.
Three awards are given out at Heritage Day each year:
The Othmer Gold Medal honors outstanding individuals who have made multifaceted contributions to our chemical and scientific heritage through outstanding activity in such areas as innovation, entrepreneurship, research, education, public understanding, legislation, and philanthropy.
The Bolte Award recognizes outstanding contributions by a leader who provides products or services vital to the continuing growth and development of the chemical and molecular sciences community.
