Student Digital Media Competition

In 2017, the Coalition launched its newest competition, the Student Digital Media Competition, to discover and recognize quality digital media projects that highlight these and other intersections between science and human rights.

The AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition Student Digital Media Competition is made possible by the AAAS-Andrew M. Sessler Fund for Science, Education, and Human Rights
