We are pleased to announce the fourth annual Sleep Research Society (SRS) Infographic Contest and request that you share this opportunity with your students and encourage them to submit an entry. The intent of this Contest is to promote awareness about sleep and circadian rhythms through the creation of an Infographic (information graphic).
2024 Infographic Topic:
“How to maximize sleep when you can’t control your work schedule”
We are inviting infographic submissions that use textual information combined with graphics to communicate two broad topics: 1) sleep challenges faced by occupational groups that have limited control over work schedules (e.g., shift workers) and 2) opportunities to reduce fatigue and improve sleep health despite these challenges. Infographics may outline challenges faced by specific occupational groups (e.g., first responders, nurses) or speak about barriers broadly (e.g., work/life balance, schedule control, unplugging from work when schedules can change).
Who is eligible? Any individual or group of individuals enrolled in high school or in an undergraduate program, or who has evidence of being enrolled in a homeschooling program, at the time of entry is eligible. Current SRS members of any category are also eligible, but this is not required. Winners from each category of the Contest will be awarded the following prizes:
- First Prize: $125 or free SRS membership/renewal for one year, a certificate, and their Infographic promoted on social media.
- Second Prize: $75, a certificate, and their Infographic promoted on SRS social media.
- Third Prize: $50, a certificate, and their Infographic promoted on SRS social media.
Note: High school or undergraduate students that submit an Infographic as a group will evenly split any prize monies among the group members.
Submission Deadline: Sunday, February 25, 2024 at 11:59 pm (CT)
