Hi all - Have you heard about the Brain Awareness Week Video contest? The first place winner will receive $1000 plus travel to the annual meeting and 2 nights lodging; there are cash prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place winners and the People’s Choice award.
If you’ve never watched one of these videos, I highly encourage you to check out the archives. Lots of great videos from people at all stages of their neuroscience career (even high schoolers). All you need is a good idea, a camera, and a member of SfN to sponsor your entry. If you know of anyone who is good with video, or if you’re affiliated with a student group, you can offer up your expertise and can sponsor a video.
All details, plus previous winners can be found here: http://www.brainfacts.org/bavc.
Break a neurons!
