Hi Ian

*Re: 2014 Science and Innovation Awards for Young People in Agriculture,
Fisheries and Forestry winners’ booklet.*

Last year Australian Science Communicators assisted us to recruit two
writers to author articles on the winners and their projects for the
Science and Innovation Awards. We are hoping to enlist your help again this

The winners’ booklet summarises each award winner and their project. The
2013 winners’ booklet can be found at Award winners
Each article is around 250-300 words and is written in a news style that is
accessible and engaging for a non technical audience. This year we expect
to have 11 profiles for writing.

Winners are presented at the ABARES Outlook 2014 conference dinner in front
of approximately 400 dinner guests and the booklet is distributed at the
dinner and then to sponsors and winners afterwards.

We have funding of up to $2500 (GST inclusive) in total to go towards
payment of a writer or number of writers. An ABN is not required and
payment will be made on invoice from the writer/s. Non ABN holders will be
required to complete a Statement by a Supplier form for tax purposes.

Prospective writers will be given sample award winner’s details (including
the Science Award project) and will be asked to write a profile for our
review. When we have chosen a writer (or number of writers) ABARES will
provide the writer/s with the winners’ applications, contact details and
answers to the following questions, as a starting point to writing the
articles. The writer/s is/are encouraged to contact the winners for
additional details and quotes.

*Sample questions:*

1.      Tell us about your research project.

2.      Why are you conducting this research?

3.      What industry issues have led you to undertake this project?

4.      How will the Award contribute to research on this topic?

5.      How will the research outcome impact the industry and who will
benefit from it?

6.      What is the output of your research (e.g. a research paper, a
product, a new way of doing something, a new application for an existing
product, etc) and who will use it?

7.      What has led to your involvement in this field? Tell us about your
personal background, where you grew up and where you studied.

8.      What do you hope to achieve upon completion of this project? (e.g.
continuing research, new industry standards or approaches, etc)
