General Lab Information

We invite all Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) employees, guests, users, and visitors—and their children—to share inspiring images that capture the spirit of Earth Day. This year we are conducting four exciting contests! The winners will be selected by a Lab-wide online vote. The top three vote-getters win prizes! Participants may submit one photo each for the general contest and for the "Planet vs Plastics" theme. However, only one prize per participant will be awarded. If a participant wins in both categories, we will contact the participant to see which they prefer.

Note: You must VPN into Brookhaven Lab's internal network or be on-site to vote.
