Three Ways to Support Science!

There’s still a week left in the Science Bloggers Donors Choose challenge and we’re short of the $50,000 goal. So if you haven’t yet, head on over to our Donors Choose giving page and make a donation. No matter how small, every dollar helps.

Can’t make the donation? That’s ok, too. We’re offering a $50 prize donated to Donors Choose in your name for the best marine themed Halloween costume! Competition is fierce. Submit a picture of you in costume for a chance to win. Contest ends tomorrow night.

Didn’t dress as something marine for Halloween? That’s still ok! Veteran Science Blogger Christie Wilcox is a finalist for a $10,000 blogging scholarship, but she needs your help! Head on over to the contest, check out all the finalists, and vote for the one you think is best. Southern Fried Science enthusiastically supports Christie Wilcox.

So today, do something for the future of science, or go for the hat trick and do all three.

Send us your marine themed Halloween costumes and help some students!

There’s apparently some sort of holiday this weekend in which people are going to dress up in some sort of costume. Undoubtedly many of you will be embracing your inner ocean dork and dressing as something marine sciencey. So here’s your chance to show off you style and help out some students at the same time. Send us pictures of you in your marine science themed Halloween costume. The person (or persons) with the best costume, as judged by your three favorite bloggers, will get some SFS swag and $50 donated to the Gam Classroom Initiative project of their choice! So here’s your chance to help some students out and gain internet notoriety. Post your pictures in the comments or e-mail them to me at southernfriedscientist at gmail dot com.
