Citizen Science Month Award 2021 Awareness and Promotion

Libraries are quickly becoming hubs for citizen and community science. Your library may already be involved in citizen science programming. If so, bravo! For countless others, citizen and community science is still a bit of a mystery. We created many free resources to help you navigate the rapidly changing landscape, access materials, learn about projects and programs and explore a myriad of opportunities to support your plans to bring citizen science to your library! Libraries will promote Citizen Science Month using downloadable, customizable resources including bookmarks, flyers, posters, social media images, and other assets. Activity ideas as follows: Activate awareness of citizen science by boosting social media posts about Citizen Science Month events, programs and projects Host, co-host, or promote a Citizen Science Month event in April. Engage patrons in citizen science projects found on SciStarter.org/NLM or other projects of interest to your community. Educate patrons about the All of Us Research program by posting on social media, or presenting several slides about the All of Us Research Program at a general citizen science program.
