Here's how it works. Using your wit and brains, you draw a hilarious cartoon that gets across something important about evolution or science. You submit it to Florida Citizens for Science, which is hosting the contest, and if your entry is selected, not only do you win some awesome prizes but also Florida Citizens for Science promotes your cartoon on websites and elsewhere. Voila, instant celebrity and a better educated public!
It's easy. You don't have to live in Florida or even be able to locate Florida on a map. You don't have to be able to draw. Just draw your entry in stick figures and if you win we'll help redo it as a more professional-looking piece. You don't have to be a kid. There's a kids' division for 12 and under, as well as an adult division.
Most importantly for everyone, I am serving as a celebrity judge for the contest. Yes, it's true. My tiara is at the ready.
I'm also delighted to have the job of re-drawing any stick-figure cartoons that win, and to donate a Giant Timeline and deck of Creature Cards to be used as two of the many prizes.
So call the neighbors! Wake the kids! Game on.
