Do you know someone who is especially passionate about sharing science with the public?
Paul, donning his SciCheer shirt, surrounded by his students and me.
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.
