Last year I had the honor to receive this award and I can honestly say it was one of the best experience of my personal and professional life! So, if you know an unsung hero of science communication, please nominate her or him to the Paul Shin Award! I would happy to answer any questions!
El año pasado tuve el honor de recibir este premio y con toda honestidad puedo decir que es una de las mejores experiencias a nivel personal y profesional. ¡Nomina a tu héroe o heroína anónimo/a de la dilvulgación científica al Premio Paul Shin!
Do you know someone who is especially passionate about sharing science with the public? If so, please take a few moments to honor him or her with a nomination for the Paul Shin Memorial Award. This annual COPUS award recognizes people like Paul -- those dedicated to sharing science with the public. The award especially acknowledges "unsung heroes" for whom science promotion may not be part of an everyday job, but who nevertheless give their time and energy to enhancing the public understanding of or engagement with science. Your nominee could be a coworker, school teacher, college professor, or police officer – anyone who has gone the extra mile to make science engaging and accessible.
The winner will receive a cash award and will be invited to attend the 2014 COPUS gathering (expenses paid, March 14-16th).
Please submit nominations via the COPUS website. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2013.
