Science Atlantic Science Communication Award
Sponsored by Canadian Science Publishing, Science Atlantic and The Atlantic Student Research Journal
The Science Atlantic Science Communication Award is offered at each of the annual Science Atlantic-sponsored student conferences. The prize is awarded to the student who is best able to communicate a science topic to his or her peers. The award may be split into two prizes (one for an oral and one for a poster presentation) at the discretion of the judging committee.
The award consists of a letter of commendation, a cash prize and the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Atlantic Student Research Journal team to write and publish an article about the winner’s research. Click here to read up on the editorial process.
Each conference organizing committee determines the judging committee membership. Some committees involve students, some have a ballot vote of all conference attendees, and some are professors in the discipline.
The judging committee has the right to not give an award in any competition. If there are fewer than three students eligible to compete for this award at any conference, the award may not be disbursed.
The decision of the judges is final.
Awards (cash prize) at the Aquaculture & Fisheries, Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Environment, Physics & Astronomy and the Nutrition conferences are sponsored by Canadian Science Publishing.
Awards (cash prize) at the Mathematics & Statistics and Computer Science conference and the Psychology conference are sponsored by Science Atlantic.
Awards (writing opportunity) for all of the Science Atlantic conferences are sponsored by the Atlantic Student Research Journal.
