What are the Interns up to?

The 2018 SPS Interns are already halfway through their summer stay in DC. Each intern has documented their weekly experience through a blog covering not only their work projects, but events like the intern boat cruise, astronomy outreach event, dinner with the CEO of AIP, adventures at museums, and more! Read the blogs here.

And the Winners are...

Congratulations to all 238 SPS chapters who submitted their 2017-18 Chapter Report on time to the SPS National Office and qualified for the Outstanding Chapter Award! The first 100 chapters who submitted their reports were entered into a random drawing to win a $100 pizza gift card for their chapter. The winners are:

Nebraska Wesleyan University

Henderson State University

Indiana University - Bloomington

Georgia Southern University

Congratulations all! And if you haven’t submitted a chapter report, it’s not too late, let us know what your chapter did this year!
