Capturing Science contest

The University of Georgia Libraries and the Office of Research are sponsoring the 2018 Capturing Science Contest to encourage STEM communication in a diversity of formats. The entry deadline is 5 p.m. on Nov. 26.

Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for $1,700 in prizes. 

Contestants will explain a science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, concept to a broader audience using any media. Examples include essays, board games, virtual reality, videos, music, software, apps, curricula, lesson plans, poems, infographics, fiction and exhibits.

The top three undergraduate and graduate submissions each receive prizes of $500, $250 and $100.

All currently enrolled UGA undergraduate and graduate students are eligible. Students may submit works used for other class assignments. Multiple entries are acceptable.

Submissions will be evaluated on clarity of expression, creativity and appeal to a broad audience.
