Hello STEM Educators,

My name is Alexandra Longo and I work for the Society for Neuroscience as the Public Education Assistant. SfN offers a contest each year to help people learn more about the brain in a creative and engaging way - the Brain Awareness Video Contest! This contest is a great opportunity to educate your students about neuroscience, and introduce them to brain science as a STEM topic.

Here are some details about the contest:

Create an educational video about the brain for the 2014 Brain Awareness Video Contest. Demonstrate a neuroscience concept through animation, song, skit, or any other creative approach. Get your students excited about neuroscience and put your creative skills to work - you could win $1,000!

Anyone can enter. You can work on a video by yourself, or in a group. This is an especially great opportunity to get younger audiences engaged in science. Videos must be submitted by an SfN member. Find a member near you with the Neuroscientist-Teacher Partner Program at SfN.org/NTP.
Top videos will be featured on SfN.org and BrainFacts.org and recognized at Neuroscience 2014.

Submissions are due June 12 - start working on your video today!

Watch last year's winning videos and learn more about contest rules and guidelines at www.brainfacts.org/bavc.

If you have any questions about the contest, please email me directly at alongo@sfn, or send an email to baw@sfn.org.

Thank you!
