Public vote video award
STEM Alliance will post the video on STEM Alliance official Facebook and Twitter accounts. An additional award will be given to a video with the largest public support on these official accounts. Votes on other accounts will not be taken into account. The video will be selected using the amount of retweets or likes on Facebook to measure its popularity.

The award for this category will be for the participant who, by 28th March 2017 has done the best coverage of STEM education events. The STEM Alliance team in collaboration with Scientix will select a winner taking into account the amount of material published and its quality.
