Closing Date : 31 October 2022


The Young Science Communicator’s Competition (YSCC) specifically challenges young scientists and researchers between the ages of 18 and 35 to communicate their world to a larger audience beyond their scientific community.

Scientists are by nature passionate people. This can be reflected in the way stories are told and communicated. You, the scientist, can engage and excite your community about your science. You can connect and show your science is relevant to people in their everyday lives.

In line with SAASTA’s purpose of developing science communication skills, the feedback from the judges for each entry is made available – to encourage the young scientists to develop their skills and to take their passion for communication further.
