Plus magazine (http://plus.maths.org) is looking for the science writers
of the future who can make mathematics lively and interesting for a
general audience. We are inviting all secondary and sixth form students
to become the science writers of the future who can explain a
mathematical topic or
application they think the world needs to know about.
The winning entries will be read by an international audience of over a
hundred thousand in the June 2009 issue of Plus, and the winners will
receive an iPod, subscriptions to the journal Nature, and signed copies
of popular maths books by some of the best science writers today.
The competition will be judged by three prominent mathematicians and
science writers - judges in previous years have included the acclaimed
mathematicians and writers Ian Stewart, John D Barrow and Marcus du
Sautoy. The closing date is March 31st 2009.
If you think your students can share their passion for maths with the
general public, please encourage them to visit the competition page
