Dear STEM Ambassadors,
The 2020 Connecting Science Public Engagement Prizes close to nominations on Monday.
We have seen some fantastic commitment and engagement activities from STEM Ambassadors
this year. Please consider nominating yourself, someone else and/or a team for a prize. We
appreciate that many public engagement activities had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.
This will be taken into account and, where appropriate, judging will focus on the
development, design and creativity of public engagement activities that were unable to
take place, as well as the proactivity and innovation shown by the nominee.
It only takes two minutes to nominate yourself or
someone<http://www.bit.ly/PEprizes2020> else working at the Wellcome Genome
There are five prizes available:
* Commitment to Public Engagement: celebrates individual members of staff or students
who have demonstrated significant and longstanding commitment to public engagement. One
winner will receive £500.
* Public Engagement Innovator: recognises individual members of staff or students who
have demonstrated outstanding proactivity or creativity in public engagement. One winner
will receive a personal prize of £250 plus a development award of the same amount to be
directed towards a public engagement or related professional development activity.
* Public Engagement Advocacy: recognises members of staff or students who have enabled
positive change in public engagement through leadership, guidance, practical measures or
emotional support. Prize can go to a group or individual. One winning individual will
receive £500 or a group will receive £1000.
* Collaboration in Public Engagement: recognises a group of individuals who have
worked particularly well together to embed public engagement into their work. One winning
group will receive £1000.
* Public Engagement Prize for Technical Staff - Sponsored by the Technician
Commitment: open to members of Technical staff across the entire Campus who have
undertaken or supported high quality public engagement as part of their work at the
Wellcome Genome Campus. One winner will receive a personal prize of £250 plus a Technician
Commitment Grant of the same amount to be put towards public engagement or a related
professional development activity.
