Just a reminder, the deadline to enter our spring University Science Writing Competition is tomorrow, March 15th at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.  (and thanks to daylight savings time, you just lost an hour this morning!)

The competition is open to all graduate students.

Original articles may be submitted on any subject that exists within the six key disciplines of science featured on ScientificBlogging: Physical Sciences, Earth Sciences, Life Sciences, Medicine, Social Sciences and Culture. In other words – just about anything. Finalists will then be chosen across all disciplines by an internal panel of ScientificBlogging staff, featured writers, and specialists in the various fields of science. The selected articles will be posted for voting, and the final winners will be determined by the results of on-line votes cast by ScientificBlogging readers.

Prizes will be awarded to the authors of the articles that receive the first, second, and third most votes respectively during the on-line voting period.

GRAND PRIZE - $1,000 Cash AND a 3-month paid writing internship at ScientificBlogging
SECOND PRIZE - $500 Cash
THIRD PRIZE - $250 Cash

All entries must be received by March 15th, and finalists will be announced on March 31, 2010. On-line voting will take place from April 1st through April 20th, and all winners will be announced on ScientificBlogging.com on May 1, 2010.

We had some great entries last fall, and are looking forward to what everyone has to offer this spring.  To enter, submit an article using the link under the "Submit an Article" section on our Contest page.

All the rules can be found here.  Good luck!!
