The winner will receive $1,500, and a free trip to the American Chemical Society meeting in Washington DC, 20-24 August 2000.

This is the third year of the competition. Details of previous winners and their articles can be found on the site, and rules, and the panel of judges. Liz Rawlings, Editor of The Alchemist, commented "The Young Chemistry Writer of the Year competition is a brilliant opportunity for young chemists to write on an area of chemistry that excites them, which will have broad appeal to a scientifically-literate audience. The prizes are awarded to those who, in the opinion of the judges, have both hit upon a new area of chemistry and presented it in an informative and stimulating article."
