The U.S. WIN Communications Committee sponsors a contest between U.S. WIN chapters to encourage outreach activities during the annual National Nuclear Science Week (NSW). The Chapters are judged on the number of activities held during NSW, number of participating U.S. WIN members, number of individuals and public sectors (K-12, civic, government, etc.) reached and the variety of topics covered.
Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, there were 4 chapter entries for the 2020 contest from DC WIN, Exelon-Braidwood, Exelon-Kennett Square, and Westinghouse-Pittsburgh. Through the activities of these chapters, almost 400 individuals experienced various nuclear science topics via discussions, presentations, and virtual platforms. Since some of the events were recorded, there is no telling the true impacts of their efforts. From these submissions, the Exelon – Kennett Square chapter was selected as the 2020 contest winner! Thank you to all the participating chapters for your efforts to bring the message about nuclear and radiation out to so many!
