Book Awards

We offer two annual book awards to honour outstanding contributions to science writing for:

  1. Children aged 8-12 years.
  2. General public audience.
Competitors must be Canadian citizens or residents, but need not be SWCC members.

Entries, in either French or English, must have been published in Canada during the current calendar year. 

Join our board of directors

Joining the SWCC Board of Directors is an excellent opportunity to participate in setting the annual agenda, help foster the growth of the SWCC and get your ideas across to our community!

The Science Writers and Communicators of Canada will be electing four directors to its board at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on September 13, 2022.

To apply as a candidate for these posts, just complete the nomination form and circulate it to two nominators for their signatures. In accordance with the terms of the SWCC Constitution, nominations are now open and will close at 5 pm EST on August 5, 2022.
