Applications for the Cassini Scientist for a Day Contest are Due Nov.
15

The Cassini Scientist for a Day contest challenges students to be a
NASA scientist studying Saturn. Participants are challenged to examine
four target images taken by Cassini and choose the one that they think
will yield the best scientific results. This choice must then be
explained in a 500-word essay.

The contest is open to all students in the U.S. from grade 5 to 12,
working alone or in groups of up to four students. The essays will be
divided into two groups: grades 5-8 and grades 9-12. All submissions
must be students' original work. Each student can submit only one
entry.

Deadline for submission is Nov. 15, 2007. For more information, visit:
