INFN is organizing a monthly competition for the young fans of science. Each month, science enthusiasts are invited to develop a theme in Italian or English in a funny and accessible, even by non-experts, way.

February’s topic is “The Energy” and participants are invited to submit an essay that will provide the readers with an introduction, followed by a simple and concise presentation.

Projects can be submitted in one of the following forms:

- Drafted text in doc, rft, pdf: 3,000 characters maximum, including spaces

- PowerPoint presentation, etc.: two pages maximum

- Artwork in digital form (gif, jpeg): one page

- Mp3 / 4, video clips (vma, mpeg, avi): one minute maximum

All entries must be submitted by the 25th of the current month via email to: redazionesxt@lists.lnf.infn.it

Each month a winner will be announced and his or her paper will be published in INFN’s website “ScienzaPerTutti”. Winners will also receive an ALICE Papercraft 3D model, designed by our own Tiziano Virgili.

So sharpen your pencils, get your brushes ready or open your word processor, and start working on explaining February’s hot topic!
