Science Idol contest ends 7/31/06


Last Chance to Enter!

Time is running out to enter Science Idol: The Scientific Integrity Editorial Cartoon Contest—the deadline is Monday, July 31! We’ve received some spectacular entries so far—from artists in their teens to those in their nineties—but you still have a few days left. This is your last chance to show off your artistic and comedic talents by creating a one-panel or multi-panel cartoon that takes on the issue of political interference in science.

Tell your friends!
Do you have talented friends who would be interested in entering? Click here to give them the opportunity to have their work reviewed by some of America’s leading Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonists.

Does the fact that hundreds of scientists at the Food and Drug Administration report being asked to change technical information for non-scientific reasons make you question the safety of prescription drugs?

Do you have something to say about the Environmental Protection Agency creating air quality standards that misrepresent recommendations from its own science advisory panel?

Does it seem wrong to you that Congress is attempting to undermine the scientific principles of the Endangered Species Act?

There’s more than enough material to work with, it just needs your creative spin to make a winning cartoon. Our four celebrity judges will help UCS narrow the entries down to 12 finalists. Then, in early September, it’ll be up to you to cast your vote and choose the winner.

Show off your creative talents and help raise awareness of this critical issue—Enter Today!
