Canadian Blood Services Lay Science Writing Competition is delivered in partnership with the Centre for Blood Research at the University of British Columbia and Science Borealis. The Competition provides trainees the opportunity to showcase to the public their research in the domain of blood, plasma, stem cells, or organs and tissues. It also supports trainees in their development of vital communication skills. The winning entry will receive a $300 prize and the two runners-up will each receive $100 prizes. Selected entries will be disseminated through Canadian Blood Services and partners’ online platforms and social media channels.
