ScientificBlogging Science Writing Competition

ScientificBlogging has just announced its Spring 2010 University Science Writing Competition.
Currently enrolled graduate students are invited to participate by submitting an original article on a scientific topic of their choosing. It is our hope to discover those exceptional students that not only know their science, but can also apply it and effectively communicate it to the scientific community – as well as the general public. Finalists will be chosen by an internal panel of ScientificBlogging staff, featured writers, and specialists in the various fields of science. The final winners will then be selected from among these finalists by on-line voting by ScientificBlogging readers.
The author of the article receiving the most overall votes will be awarded a $1,000 cash Grand Prize, as well as a 3-month paid writing internship at ScientificBlogging.com. In addition, the authors that receive the second and third most votes for their articles will receive cash prizes of $500 and $250 respectively. This is also an opportunity for all participants to have their work published and featured on a premier science site receiving over a million readers per month, and to be read and reviewed by some of the most respected minds and writers in the science community.
The competition runs from February 15, 2010 - March 15, 2010. The article on our website that provides the details about the competition, rules, and submission guidelines can be found at: http://www.scientificblogging.com/community_connections/announcing_return_university_science_writing_competion
