Do you know a science writer who should be honored for breathing life into science? For showing us what we can’t see and explaining what we can’t comprehend? For showing us why we should care?

The Science Journalism Laureates program, now in its third year, recognizes outstanding science communicators around the world. Recipients are leading science and technology journalists with exceptional reputations for thought-provoking work and the ability to present scientific discoveries in a manner that captures the interest of the general public.

Laureates are chosen by faculty at Purdue University and by former Science Journalism Laureates. Those selected attend an expenses-paid, two-day conference on the Purdue campus in the fall. To be considered as a 2009 Science Journalism Laureate, a working science journalist should be nominated by a colleague who also works as a science journalist or editor or by a public information officer.

The nomination package should contain:

– A letter of nomination
– Three samples of representative work

– Up to five letters of support from professional colleagues

Nomination packages should be sent to:
