The USA Science and Engineering Festival Announces the Winners of the 2010 Kavli Foundation Science Video Contest

The USA Science and Engineering Festival challenged students across the nation to make a video that tells us "Why Science is Cool". The video contest received over 100 entries, and the awards ceremony was hosted Oct. 24 in Washington, D.C., by Bill Nye the Science Guy, as part of the festival's Expo on the National Mall. Top prizes include an HD camcorder (first prize), in addition to cash donations assigned to the students' school science or technology programs, WOLFRAM Mathematica visualization software, and Adobe PREMIERE editing software.

The contest was sponsored by the Kavli Foundation, as part of its mission to advance public understanding of science.
