2018 Ocean 180 Video Challenge
Share Your Research With the World
Ocean scientists of all career stages are invited to take the Ocean 180
Challenge and create a 3-minute video abstract that effectively communicates
the findings and significance of a recently published study.  Sponsored by
the Florida Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE Florida)
and funded by the National Science Foundation, the Ocean 180 Video Challenge
encourages scientists to share their discoveries and excitement for research
with the public.
$13,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the winning entries
Submissions are due March 31, 2018
Entries are initially screened and evaluated by a team of science and
communication experts to determine the top ten finalists, but the winners
are selected by student judges from 6th-8th grade classrooms around the
world. Over 40,000 students from 24 countries participated as judges in
previous Ocean 180 Challenges.
This is a fantastic opportunity for scientists to broaden the impact and
raise the profile of their research while practicing their communication
