AAAS Invites Nominations for the New AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science

Do you know an early-career scientist or engineer whose efforts to engage the public with science and technology exemplify excellence? Nominations are invited now through 15 October for the new AAAS Early Career Award for Public Engagement with Science. Endowed by Bob and Margee Hazen and other donors, the new award will specifically focus on public engagement with science activities that promote interactive dialogue with a non-scientific, public audience.

The award will include a $5000 prize and support to attend the 2011 AAAS Annual Meeting. Nominations may be made by AAAS affiliate organizations, universities, government agencies, media, research organizations, and individuals. The award is open to individual "early career" scientists and engineers who have been working in their current field for less than seven years (at a pre-tenure or equivalent level).
