Voices of Tomorrow and the Leonard M. Rieser Award

In its Voices of Tomorrow feature, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists invites recent graduates as well as graduate students, undergraduates, and high school scholars to submit essays, opinion pieces, and multimedia presentations addressing at least one of the Bulletin's core issues: nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, climate change, biosecurity, and threats from emerging technologies.

Beginning in 2015, editors will select one Voices of Tomorrow feature as winner of the Leonard M. Rieser Award; the author of that article will receive a $1,000 check plus a one-year subscription to the Bulletin’s journal, in addition to the publication of their submissions.

Submission process. Current students as well as recent graduates are encouraged to submit work. Essays and opinion pieces should not be longer than 2,000 words; video presentations should not exceed 5 minutes in playing time. Each entry must contain: the author's email address, phone number, short biography, and school affiliation. Submissions should not have been previously published.
