Poetry Contest Celebrates Stem Cell Awareness Day
CIRM is sponsoring a poetry contest to celebrate Stem Cell Awareness Day. Entries are welcome from anywhere in the world – not solely California.
The winner (or winners) will receive a framed stem cell image of their choice from those on the CIRM flickr photostream. If the winner(s) prefer the image can be framed alongside their poem. The winning poem(s) will also be posted on the Stem Cell Awareness Day and CIRM Websites and may be printed in the CIRM annual report.
Poems of 250 words or less that relate to the subject of stem cell science should be submitted by September 27th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see last year's poetry contest winners here.
