A science communication contest for early career astrobiologists is accepting entries at this time. Each contestant will be judged on his or her three-minute oral presentation (no electronic media or charts). Preliminaries will be held in Houston, Denver and Washington DC. The final is in Atlanta in April.

This contest is sponsored by (among others) NASA, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and National Geographic.

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to participate.

Didac Carmona has won the 2012 Famelab contest. He won over judges (which included a comedian...?) with his description of self-sacrificing cells that end their individual existence for "the good of the organism".
