Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness seeks participants for its 10th Annual High School Essay Contest. High school juniors and seniors in Aiken, Allendale,Barnwell, Burke, Columbia, and Richmond County schools are eligible to submit entries. The winning student(s) will receive a $1,000 scholarship with an additional award of $500 to each winner's school.

The goal of the CNTA Essay Contest is to increase high school student awareness of nuclear technologies and their impact on society. Successful essays require students to integrate science, technology, social understanding, and language arts. Researching a technical topic, relating the information to society, and effectively communicating the information in writing are great skills for any high school student to practice and demonstrate.

Winning students, their parents, and school representatives will be invited to be honored guests and be recognized at CNTA's prestigious Edward Teller Lecture and Banquet, held in the fall of 2016.

CNTA is a grassroots organization of individuals, families, and businesses dedicated to raising the level of awareness of nuclear technology initiatives. The Essay Contest is an exciting part of this mission. CNTA staff and essay contest judges look forward each year to receiving and reviewing student essays and being able to recognize and reward deserving students and their schools. CNTA has sponsored the contest for the last seven years and has awarded 31 scholarships totaling $46,500 to local students and schools.
