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
Top videos will be featured on and 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

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