Chapter Video Challenge
SfN's global chapters are invited to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary by creating a video about the importance of brain science.
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, SfN's Global Membership Committee invites the Society's global chapters to participate in the Chapter Video Challenge! We challenge each chapter to create a video describing why brain science is important to society.
It is the goal of the Global Membership Committee that these videos will have broad application in advocacy and outreach efforts around the world. Videos will be judged by high-school contestants who are members of the International Youth Neuroscience Association (IYNA) and have participated in their local Brain Bee within the past three years.
Questions? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The submission period for the Chapter Video Challenge has ended. Thank you for participating.
