Science Communication Award, sponsored by Canadian Science Publishing
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 consists of a letter of commendation and a cash prize. As well, winners in the disciplines sponsored by Canada Science Publishing (see below) will be offered the opportunity to write a blog post about the winner's research with professional editorial support. These articles will be posted on the Science Borealia blog . 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.
