Last year the DUJS saw a huge increase in submissions, with more than 260 essays from 20 countries in the 2013 competition.

The DUJS aims to provide a venue where students can practice and refine their scientific writing skills and also reflect Dartmouth’s growing emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Participants are encouraged to identify an important scientific discovery and the significance of the discovery for its field as well as for society. The first-place winner will receive a $500 award and have her or his winning essay published in the fall 2014 print issue of the DUJS. Submissions are due Wednesday, October 8.

More information and application forms are available on the DUJS website.

Founded in 1998, the DUJS is a student-run publication committed to keeping the Dartmouth community up to date on scientific news through quarterly print and weekly online publications. The DUJS receives support from an advisory board of 12 scientists, engineers, and other professionals from across campus.
