Award of $5,000 to a USA, Canada, or International engineer or scientist with less than seven years' experience who has demonstrated excellence in engaging the public in science activities. Eligible activities include public outreach, informal science education, public policy, science fairs and cafés, social and online media, and radio, television, and film programs.

For the purposes of this award, public engagement activities are defined as the individual’s active participation in efforts to engage with the public on science- and technology-related issues and promote meaningful dialogue between science and society.
Types of public engagement activities might include: informal science education, public outreach, public policy, and/or science communication activities, such as mass media, public dialogue, radio, TV and film, science cafés, science fairs, and social and online media.
