The finalists for the CollegeScholarship.com $10,000 scholarship have been announced, and
SB's [I stand corrected, excuse the faux pas] Sb's own Shelley of Retrospectacle is one of them! Make sure that you go over to the voting page (the contest from here on out depends on votes from readers like you) and vote for Shelley (and tell all your friends too).
Also of note are two other science bloggers in the long list of 20, The Big Room (and little things in it) and Anthropology.net. I was hoping to make the finals myself, but even though I didn't make it I have something to shoot for next time (although I have to admit that the $10,000 would come quite in handy if I'm going to make it to the Koobi Fora field school).
Still, Shelley's got my vote and I can't imagine a more deserving student blooger. Now go and vote!
Thank you so much!
I've heard bad things about the Koobi Fora field school. I was gonna go in 2004 but because of some advice I backed out. I recommend you volunteer with some project, such as the Middle Awash... that is if they are taking volunteers.
