Another prize from TSGC

The Texas Space Grant Consortium is also holding the NASA Means Business Competition 2007, a competition for university students to design programs to inspire middle school and high school students to excel in math and sciences. The finalist teams get $1,000 and travel to JSC and KSC, while the Grand Prize winner also presents their program to NASA HQ. This will be input to NASA's strategic communication strategy. NASA Watch and others have lately been stressing that NASA's communication is out of touch with the generation that will be implementing its long-term plans now in development. This may be a way for them to get some insight into this problem.
