Eye on the Future Campaign: Career in science

Is your student considering a career in science?

This is for students who have an interest in a career in science!

Last year, the National Eye Institute (NEI) launched the Eye on the Future (EOTF) campaign to encourage teens to consider a career in science. As part of the campaign, NEI created a national video contest for high schoolers to submit short videos in response to our science-related prompts. Now we’re getting ready to launch this year’s contest and need your help spreading the word!  

Submission categories will prompt teens to consider science in their world, science in the field or lab, and/or science in their future. Teens can record video submissions on their own or team up with friends for a chance to win. We’ll award 3 winners with a $2,000 cash prize — plus a free trip to the National Institutes of Health for a day of science, networking, and fun!
