Eye On The Future Video Contest for Grades 9-12!
Calling all Division C participants (Grades 9-12)!
Great scientists need to be great communicators - to get support and funding for their work, to educate the public on important issues, and to persuade other scientists to join their cause. As a Science Olympiad participant, you're already becoming a great scientist. Now check out this opportunity to improve those communication skills and maybe win some great prizes.
The Eye on the Future Video Contest is sponsored by the National Eye Institute, a part of the National Institutes of Health.
If you're a student in Grades 9-12, the National Eye Institute invites you to submit a video about how science is important in your life by April 16, 2023. You can work individually or as a small team (up to 3 team members). Just choose a video category and get started!
To learn more, check out the Eye on the Future Video Contest information page. It has everything you need to participate, like the video categories, detailed rules and directions, the registration form, the video release form, submission instructions - and the prizes you can win!
