We are very excited to announce submissions are open for our Brain Essay Contest held in conjunction with four other blogs. The hosts are:
- A Blog Around The Clock
- Positive Psychology News Daily
- The Quick and the Ed
The goal of this contest is to connect high-school students and teachers of biology and psychology with science and psychology bloggers. Students will need to answer in 400–800 words:
“Based on brain and mind research (within the past 5 years),
- How do we learn?
- How can this new knowledge improve education and the lives of all people?”
Submissions are due by May 10, 2007.
The ten best essays, as selected by the jury of the host blogs, will be posted on the host blogs and entered into blog carnivals. The winners will gain recognition in the blogophere and get a complimentary annual subscription to TuitionCoach, a personalized, internet-based program that de-mystifies the college financial aid process for students and their families and helps families find the best options to finance college choices.
Are you a high school student? Do you know a high school student? If so, get those keyboards warmed up and send us your best!
