Chemistry promoted by contest

To help celebrate International Year of Chemistry, Canada’s Chemistry Industry Association of Canada is holding a YouTube contest open to middle school and high school students interested in chemistry.

To be eligible to win $500, $1,000 or $2,500 in scholarship money, students have to create a one- to three-minute YouTube video that demonstrates the benefits of chemistry, showcases the contributions of a recognized chemist, or bust a commonly held myth.

“We’re looking for students in towns and cities across Canada who have an interest in science, and the ability to have some fun with chemistry and to convey that on-camera,” said David Dolphin, chairman of Canada’s IYC committee.

The contest runs until April 22. A list of rules can be found at www.iyc2011.ca.
