Kids Read Science and Teens Read Science Contest Winners

After an impromptu and slapdash beginning, the Kids Read Science and Teens Read Science contests have wrapped up. Jeff and I are pleased to announce our winners!

First of all, I'd like to thank our sponsors, Thermo-Fisher and Invitrogen/Molecular Probes for their kind donations to the contest! Due to their generous support, we are able to offer some great prizes. The authors who kindly sent in signed copies of their books are also most appreciated! Every contestant will receive a book, chosen by Joanne and Jeff, and some other cool prizes!

We had many blogs also help promote the contest as well as folks on twitter helping to spread the word, and I am grateful for that as well.

Jeff of Scienticity.net and I would like to extend a very warm thank you those who helped us do the judging this year: Dr. Carin BondarDr. Brian KruegerLois Lowry (author) and Amy Jenkins (librarian).

I am very pleased with the entries this year. They are clever and well thought out.The kids and teens are quite amazing and I found myself absolutely charmed by their creativity and personalities!

First, here are the Kids Read Science entrants and winners. There were 8 entrants all together. We have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner and a category for Notable Creativity.

I enjoyed each video and decision making was tough. 
 
What book do I most want to read right now after watching all of these videos? I've not read any of them, so I could easily add to my stack of books, but I think Countdown: A History of Space Flight has captured my imagination.
 
Take a look at these reviews and give these kids some views for their hard work. Enjoy!
 
Kindly, Joanne
