A tremendous amount of scientific innovation is taking place across Latin America and the Caribbean, with many researchers and entrepreneurs developing new solutions to make a positive impact in their own communities and around the world. But their achievements often remain unrecognized.
Through the “Champions of Science® Storytelling Challenge—Latin America and the Caribbean Edition," we are showcasing the contributions of talented and passionate scientists and innovators to build public engagement and support for science, and inspire the next generation to pursue scientific fields that will have the potential to drive growth and transformation.
We invited scientists doing innovative and impactful work in that part of the world to share their stories through January 22, 2019. The submission process is now closed for judging—winners will be notified soon!
