The St Louis Section Chemical Technician Award has been retired as of 2005. The illustrious previous winners are still illustrious, however, so it seems a shame to retire their honors along with the ongoing award.
A chemical technician is a person whose training includes successful completion of an Associate or Bachelors Degree in chemistry or a chemistry-related curriculum, or equivalent knowledge gained by experience. The primary work of a chemical technician is conducting experimentation and/or correlating information to assist in the solving of chemical problems.
The award was presented to a chemical technician in the St Louis area who had demonstrated a high degree of professionalism as a chemical technician. Criteria included technical skills, safety and housekeeping, relationship with co-workers, presentations, reliability, communication skills, contribution to team efforts, and additional professional activities.
