SfN Brain Awareness Video Contest: Win $1000 and a trip to SfN 2012 in New Orleans

A message from the Society for Neuroscience!

Good news about the Brain Awareness Video Contest — we’ve extended the deadline until July 2. 

That means you have three additional weeks to create an educational video about the brain. You could win up to $1,000 and a trip to the Society for Neuroscience’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Stumped about what type of video to make? Watch the winning videos from 2011 and check out all the submissions, such as this song on the cranial nerves, a film noir about addiction, or a trip through the history of neuroscience. For the first time, videos depicting a classroom activity will be eligible for an honorable mention category.

Help spread the word about the deadline extension. Tell your friends, students, coworkers, and social networks. Everyone is eligible; just partner with an SfN member to submit. Find a neuroscientist near you with the Neuroscientist-Teacher Partner program.

Submissions are due Monday, July 2, by 5 p.m. EST. Learn more and submit your video at
