A contest of writing scientific stories for children

The Society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK/CERU) would like to invite you to participate in the 2nd edition of our contest Science me a story, an initiative sponsored by Lilly Foundation and with the collaboration of The University of Liverpool.

The aim of the contest is to promote science using stories as a tool to communicate and engage primary school children. The success obtained in term of participants and media in Spain and the United Kingdom with the first edition encourages us to organize it again.

We are very excited about this second edition and want you to participate in creating magnificent scientific stories to inspire the curiosity about science in a new generation of young readers.

Moreover, you could win one of the 3 money prizes worth £150, £100 and £50. If this was not enough, the awarded stories will be published in a science communication magazine and/or other written media. You will be able to participate in the closing award ceremony that will be held in the United Kingdom next autumn.
