The North Carolina Section of the American Chemical Society is proud to announce the 2014 ChemTube Competition! All eligible videos will be uploaded to the NCACS YouTube channel to share the exciting chemistry videos produced in North Carolina and to compete for a cash prize. We’re looking forward to seeing your video! Good luck!
The theme for this year’s competition is the National Chemistry Week theme, The Sweet Side of Chemistry – Candy! Everybody loves the sweet taste of candy, whether it’s fruity, chocolate, or any other taste! The flavor of candy and other foods comes from the chemistry of the ingredients and how your body senses them. The chemistry involved in eating, tasting, and making candy explains how we get our energy and how our body uses what we eat. We want to see videos about candy or other sweet foods that explain why you love sugar!
It’s easy to take part in the competition! All you have to do is film a video and submit an entry form and a copy of the video to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will upload the videos to the NCACS Youtube channel for viewing and voting.

We are also looking for non-members to join in the competition, so please help us to get the word out by posting the flier above around your departments or places of work! Tell your family and friends! This competition is open to all who are interested!
Submissions may begin immediately and are due by October 3, 2014. The top videos in each category will be shown at the local section’s public activities at the North Carolina State Fair Oct. 16-26, 2014, and during National Chemistry Week, and the winners will be announced at the local section meeting in November. We’re looking forward to seeing your video! Good luck!
