The INS, in collaboration with the International Youth Neuroscience Association (IYNA), is pleased to announce that the Neurothics Essay Contest is now open to high school students!
Now in its sixth year, the contest aims to promote interest in neuroethics among students and postdocs from around the world.
Participating authors can submit essays in one of three categories: One winner from each category will be selected in August and recognized at the 2019 INS Annual Meeting in Chicago—the premier gathering of professionals dedicated to neuroethics.
You can see complete guidelines for Submissions for the 2017 volume here.
Note that Best American Essays is the second entry on this list of guidelines.
Please note that, owing to the increasing number of submission from online sources, materials that does not include a full citation (name of publication, date of publication, and author contact information) will no longer be considered.” Because editors of literary journals are often stretched for time and resources such as printer ink and paper, you the writer should not assume that your online publication was printed and submitted to Best American Essays.
In fact, assume it was not submitted, and plan to do this task yourself.
