The Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE)
-- Now Accepting Nominations --


Dear Colleague,

The Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE), established in 2009 to encourage innovation and excellence in education, as well as to encourage the use of high-quality on-line resources by students, teachers, and the public, is now accepting nominations for the 2010 awards cycle. 

Winning projects should reinforce one or more of the four strands of science learning recommended by the National Academies (1); and be consistent with the science education standards published by the National Academies (2) and the AAAS (3). Please refer to the winning SPORE essays published in Science in the last issue of every month throughout 2010 for additional guidance.

Winners will be selected by the editors with the assistance of a judging panel composed of outstanding teachers and researchers in the relevant fields, chaired by the Editor-in-Chief of Science. Individuals responsible for the creation of the winning resources will be invited to write an essay that describes the resource for publication in Science in 2011. 

For a complete description of the The Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE), including rules for eligibility and nomination instructions, please visit the SPORE detail page at Science online. 

Many thanks,

Bruce Alberts, PhD
Editor-in-Chief, Science
