About the Contest

 

This contest gives high school students worldwide the chance to show the world what their genes can do by submitting a 3-5 minute video describing any current application of genetics (such as ancestry testing, genetic testing for disease risk, production of biofuels, etc.) and explain how it works. The application must be realistic and in current use, not science fiction, and does not need to be limited to human genetics. Students are encouraged to choose a topic that interests them and explore its signficiance in their life or society at large. International and group submissions are welcome.

 

Videos are first evaluated by ASHG for scientific soundness. Current ASHG members then vote for their favorite video based upon the judging guidelines, and the video with the most votes wins the grand prize. The next three videos with the most votes are awarded the honorable mention prizes.
