Neuroscience for Kids
Drawing Contest

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Neuroscience for Kids drawing contest. The last day to submit the drawings was February 1, 2001.

Students from Australia, Canada and the United States entered the contest and 382 drawings were received. Most of the drawings came from students in grade 3 through grade 8. All of the drawings were evaluated by Dr. Eric H. Chudler. He selected the finalists in the four age groups (Kindergarten - Grade 2; Grades 3 - 5; Grades 6 - 8; Grades 9 - 12). After the finalists were selected, a panel of judges met on February 6, 2001. The judges viewed all of the finalists and voted for the winners.
