12 Dec, 2012Tri-State Open Science Challenge Awards $16K to Four Citizen Scientists


We’ve just wrapped up the Tri-State Open Science Challenge, the second that we’ve held. We are proud to announce four winners awarding $16,000 worth of research money. We are excited to see where the projects go and hope that the research funding goes a long way towards helping them with their projects. Along with the prize money, winners also earned a 1-year subscription to Genspace, our community laboratory partner for this competition. Science not only needs money, but the input of others, so this will be a great value to the winners. We’d also like to thank the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) for donating one of the $5000 prizes, a great example of the government supporting citizen research.
