What does open science mean to you? To celebrate 20 years of open science at the Allen Institute, we are seeking creative answers in the form of artwork from youth ages 5-14.
Enter the Open Science Sticker Contest by 12:00pm (Pacific), on August 1, 2023.
To celebrate 20 years of open science at the Allen Institute, we are seeking creative answers in the form of hand-drawn artwork or a digital design.
Since 2003, the Allen Institute has been committed to open science – freely sharing our data, tools, and resources to accelerate biomedical research. Every September we celebrate these efforts with our team and our community during Open Science Week – an annual celebration during the third week of September founded and coordinated by the Allen Institute that calls attention to scientists and organizations who share their tools, resources and data openly to accelerate research and discovery. This annual celebration, founded and coordinated by the Allen Institute, takes place during the third week of September.
One winner will be selected by a panel of judges led by our education team and including scientific staff. Judging criteria include creativity, artistic talent, and how well the design encompasses or represents our theme or suggested topics in open science. The winning design will be printed on stickers that will be distributed during our Open Science Week celebrations in September as well as at select education events throughout the 23-24 school year. The winner will receive a class set of stickers and a prize pack of Allen Institute swag. Honorable mention designs may be featured on our website at alleninstitute.org/education.
