Promote the Prize

Are you an academic in a science-related faculty, or a member of a science student society? Do you know of some students, club or society members, friends or peers who would be interesting in a science writing competition?  If so, we’d love your help in spreading the word about the Prize, so that anyone and everyone can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Of course, if you or your friends are confused and unsure of your abilities, will be useful for your papers, as well as reading prime essays for inspiration or examples, etc.

If you could take a few minutes to send a PDF poster to a mailing list, or even print it out and stick it up in some buildings on your campus, your students will thank you for it.
