We are holding an essay contest where the winner will read their message at the opening ceremony of our Science Fair held at Canalside immediately after the second annual Buffalo March for Science on Saturday, April 14th. Inspired by Science Demands Action’s mission to guide communities using science for social good, this year’s theme for the Science Fair is “How can Science help you? How can you help science?” We want students to give us their answers and make their voices heard in front of a diverse crowd of over 3,000 participants (based on last year’s attendance.)
All participating students and their schools will be recognized for their submission. Two students will be selected, one from each age group, to read their message in front of the audience at the Science Fair. The winning students and their science class will also receive a tour of a local research or industry facility.
Students, please answer the following question in 1400 text characters (~250 words) or less, before April 7th:
K-6: How science has helped you, your family, or your community?7-12: How can your voice benefit science?
One winner will be chosen from each group!
Submit your essay directly through this form or scanned and emailed to the Educational Outreach Committee at email@example.com. Please direct any questions/comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Science Demands Action is 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to guide communities using science for social good. We host the annual Buffalo March for Science and engage with the Buffalo community all year by hosting discussions on topics such as vaccines, the importance of immigrant scientists, and the opioid epidemic. In the past, we have worked with the Boy Scouts of America in WNY for their “STEM Camporall,” and participated in the Buffalo Museum of Science National Engineers Week Events. Stay tuned for future SDA activities! For more information, please visit: http://www.sciencedemandsaction.org
