Citizen Science Award 2019
For the fifth time in a row, school classes and individuals have the possibility to take part in one of eight research projects. In doing so, the most enthusiastic citizen scientists will be awarded with monetary and non-monetary prizes by the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research together with the research projects in a festive event on 19 November 2019.
How can citizen scientists participate?
Each project will set up an open participation zone, in which school classes and individuals can register. From April to June 2019, citizens can participate in eight projects. The activities range from working with historic materials or discussing an open concept of home to bird watching, forest monitoring or mapping urban green spaces and trash in nature.
>> Further information on the projects and on the activities will be available soon.<<
Awards and Prizes
The performance of school classes and individuals will be evaluated. The classes or individuals which deliver the greatest amount of data or the most qualitative observations for a project will win. School classes will be awarded their prizes of up to 3,000 euros in a festive event. Individuals can win non-cash prizes.
Citizen Science Award Day
Again this year, the Center for Citizen Science and the Citizen Science Award projects will organise and host the Citizen Science Award Day. School classes and individuals, who participated in one of the research projects, have the possibility to get to know the organisations and the projects by taking part in workshops, guided tours and many other activities. Further information on the program for the Citizen Science Award Day, which will take part on the 19 November 2019 before the festive event, will be published online later this year.
