Science Writing Contest

For those of you who like essays and cash, Seed and Honeywell are sponsoring an essay contest where entrants answer the following questions:

What does it mean to be scientifically literate in the 21st century?

How do we measure the scientific literacy of a society? How do we boost it? What is the value of this literacy? Who is responsible for fostering it?

The deadline is July 1 and the maximum word count is 1,200.

For some reason, you have to be an American to enter. You also have to be 18 or older. (So up yours, you 17-year-old Germans.)

Winner gets $2,500. The first loser gets $1,000. Not too shabby.

More information can be found here.

And PZ can’t enter, so you have a shot!
