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.
In 2021, eight chapters entered submissions to the contest: DC WIN, Duke Energy, Entergy, Constellation-Kennett Square, Purdue University, Savannah River Site, University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign, and Westinghouse-Pittsburgh. Through their efforts, over 4000 individuals experienced various nuclear science topics via discussions, presentations, virtual platforms, and on-campus outreach booths.
