The Society for Science & the Public Award for Community Innovation

We are delighted to announce that SciFest 2019 has been selected by The Society for Science & the Public to receive a special student award, The Society for Science & the Public Award for Community Innovation. The award is being provided to six international affiliated fairs and 25 domestic affiliated fairs in 2019; the award will rotate among fairs in future years. The Society created the award for the purpose of supporting communities in underserved areas, increasing interest in STEM fields in these areas, and celebrating students who seek to help mankind through science and engineering. The award which consists of an engraved trophy and $500 will be presented to the project which best supports The Society’s criteria at the SciFest 2019 National Final.

The SciFest 2019 National Final will take place on 22 November in the Marino Conference Centre, Drumcondra, Dublin.
