The Oxford Scientist School Science Writing Competition

  • Are you a school, sixth form or college student in the UK in Year 10, Year 11, or Year 12 (entering into Year 11, Year 12 or Year 13 in September)?
  • Are you fascinated by science and want to communicate it to those around you?
  • Would you like to see your work published in the next issue of The Oxford Scientist AND win a £50 Amazon voucher?

If you answered YES to these questions, then all you need to do is write a 700-word article about an “unsung hero of science” and send it to us by the 18th October. It could be about anyone from a scientist who is now well known but did not receive recognition for their achievements during their lifetime, to someone who you believe has made a significant contribution to their field of science but has never been rewarded for their achievements.

Once you have written your article, you can upload it at our website www.oxsci.org/schools .

Articles must be received by midnight on the 18th October, and will be judged by our panel of experts. The winning article will be published in our magazine and receive a £50 Amazon voucher. Runners-up will be published on our website.

If you have any questions about the competition, please email competition@oxsci.org.

If your school, sixth form or college would like to subscribe to The Oxford Scientist for just £15 per year, please contact editor@oxsci.org.
