Science bloggers to discuss "GMOs" with Michael Pollan


The Changemakers international online community selected biofortified, a group website devoted to providing factual information and fostering discussion about plant genetics, especially genetic engineering, as the grand prize winner in the GMO Risk or Rescue Competition. This would not have been possible without the leadership of Karl Haro von Mogel, graduate student and blogger Anastasia Bodnar, our Australian colleague David Tribe and the votes of the science blogging community. Thanks all.

Here is the announcment:

Our entire team is excited to highlight your idea and your efforts on attaining the public vote on how your work contributes to increasing consumer knowledge about this field.

Congratulations on your accomplishment!

You will receive $1,500 to help further your work and also have a chance to have a tête-à- tête with Michael Pollan. You also will be a part of the enhanced social media workshop and a 1-page ad in the Stanford Social Innovation Review. We will soon follow up with more details on these prizes.
