Science Idol Winner
The 2007 winner of Union of Concerned Scientists' Science Idol Contest is Jesse Springer, a graphic designer from Eugene, Oregon.
The Science Idol contest elicits editorial cartoons designed to shed light on governmental interference with science. Some of us still believe that sound science should lead to sound public policy.
Hundreds of entries were submitted this year, finalists were selected by an all-star panel including Pulitzer Prize-winners Tom Toles from the Washington Post and Garry Trudeau of Doonesbury fame, and finally nearly 20,000 activists voted for the winner. A dozen of the finalist cartoons will illustrate UCS' 2008 calendar.
An effective communications strategy, coupled with activist engagement.
Here are more details … and the winner.
