Paul Shin Award - 2019 Nomination Form
Each year an individual or individuals will be selected to receive the Paul Shin Award in recognition of dedication to communicating science to the public, whether in person, in print or online, or a combination. The award especially recognizes “unsung heroes” who have demonstrated commitment and passion. Ideally, the awardee would be available to attend the 2019 COPUS Unconference (Oct 17-20, 2019).

Individuals need not be affiliated with an institution and are selected from outside the current COPUS membership. The awardee should carry out their activities consistent with “The COPUS Ideals” as developed by Natalie Kuldell and David Burns (
