A poll with a point!

The 2011 blogging scholarships are up for a vote — $10,000 goes to the winner. As you might guess, we want a science blogger to win — there are lots of good candidates, and Christie Wilcox has compiled a list of the science bloggers, but I had to place my vote for David Shiffman, just because marine biology rules. Look them over and place your vote!

    Thanks PZ for raising the awareness of this amazing scholarship opportunity! Many great student science bloggers are finalists this year and we all need your help and support!

    The public’s support & understanding of research is the foundation needed to advance human health and treat disease! If you’re interested in discussing the science behind the headlines, I encourage you to check-out Escaping Anergy: The Immunology Research blog! Escaping Anergy delivers in-depth analysis and discussion of the latest discoveries published in the fields of immunology, human health and disease! Please support women in science & help advocate greater communication between the public and scientific communities and vote for Heather! Many thanks in advance!!

    Heather Cohen writes an extremely interesting blog that communicates scientific research to the public. She doesn’t dumb down the science like some of the other “news” sources, but she makes it simple enough for anybody to understand!

    If you support increasing the public’s understanding of science, then you should vote for Heather Cohen!

    I voted for Jacquelyn Gill, because palaeontologists are the most informative people in the world. Really.

    Btw, does anyone know of a similar thing for Europe? As someone who blogs science and who had to stop his studies because of no money, it’d be awesome to have a go at such a scholarship :o

    I wonder if that poll’s been pharyngulated or if David Shiffman is popular independently….
