A night at the museum? How about a whole month! The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is holding a unique contest to give one winner the chance to spend a month at the museum and win $10,000. The winner of the contest will stay at the MSI from October 20 to November 18.
This is another social media contest like similar ones that we have seen before where the winner goes to work for a winery or an exotic locale. This time the winner will be responsible for reporting to the world about the scientific goings on at the museum. The contest website says that the candidate must be willing to "live and breathe science 24/7 for 30 days." The winner will have private sleeping quarters. For completing the task, the prize is $10,000, a package of tech gadgets and an honorary lifetime membership to MSI.
The applications are by August 11. The application is detailed on the museum website and includes a 60-second video, a 500-word essay, an application form and a 5"x7" headshot.
