WeShareScience.com<http://wesharescience.com/5-Minute-Science-Fair> is delighted to announce two upcoming prizes in the Science Fair:

*         Facebook<https://www.facebook.com/wesharescience>: A prize will be added for the video entry with the most number of Facebook "likes"<http://www.wesharescience.com/>[cid:image004.png at 01CF3237.A7B6F850]<http://www.wesharescience.com/><http://www.wesharescience.com/>. These are different from the Viewers' Choice "likes" which are done within the WeShareScience system and require people to create an account to like your video. For this prize category people can Facebook "like" your video without having to create an account. All that is needed is a Facebook account!



*         Twitter<https://twitter.com/WeShareScience>: Awards will also be offered for the video entry that is mentioned in the largest number of Tweets. The Tweets prize is based on the total number of Tweets or Retweets that include the URL for the video.

Both prizes will be active as of 1 June 2014 and are intended to help share information about your research with an even broader audience!

We hope that you will encourage your colleagues, friends, and family to help move your video to the top! Submit your 5-minute video at WeShareScience.com<http://wesharescience.com/5-Minute-Science-Fair> today. To enter, simply create a short video abstract about your research and upload your video on the website. It's that easy to stand a chance to win cash prizes to support your research!
