The NSERC’s Science, Action! video contest offers postsecondary students a chance to win cash prizes. Working alone or in teams, students are challenged to film or animate short, creative videos that tell a simple story about fascinating science. Top prize is $3,500!
This contest is a great chance to show Canadians why research matters. Last year, tens of thousands of science fans across Canada watched and shared their favourite videos online. This year, the audience will be even larger: In addition to a cash prize, the top 15 videos will be featured in museum exhibits, shown at public science events, and as part of the Science Odyssey and Science Literacy Week national celebrations.
From February 27 to March 27, watch and share your favourite videos. Show your family and friends how science and engineering is improving their lives!
The 25 videos with the most views by March 27 will proceed to our judges’ panel, where they will compete for one of 15 cash prizes!
