Just Deserts: Winning the 2011 Eureka Prize

Posted on 10 September 2011 by Bern

This post was drafted by SkS reader/contributor Bern and represents the entire team of SkS contributors

The Eureka Prizes, presented annually since 1990 by the Australian Museum, have been described as Australia’s “Oscars of Science”.  The prizes recognise and reward excellence in the fields of scientific research & innovation, science leadership, school science and science journalism & communication.

The prizes are sponsored by a wide range of government departments & research organisations, universities, foundations, media organisations and corporations.

John Cook

Skeptical Science’s founder John Cook tweeted on Tuesday that he was attending the gala presentation dinner:

Heading off to #EurekaPrize evening. Exciting & a little surreal

As long-time readers of and participants at Skeptical Science, we were delighted to see the follow-up message:

Am blown away, @skepticscience just won Eureka Prize 4 Advancement of Climate Change Knowledge

The official announcement gives a great rundown of why Skeptical Science was chosen as the winner, despite some stiff competition.

Bern would like to give a shout out and a great big “Congratulations!” to John and the supporting crew of contributors, discussion thread participants & moderators here at Skeptical Science.  It’s well deserved recognition for what is, in his opinion, one of the most useful sites in the world of Climate Science. 

The Skeptical Science team of contributors would also like to congratulate John on the well-deserved recognition of his success in creating and developing SkS, and providing continued excellent leadership in guiding the SkS team.  We will strive to continue providing content at the level which helped the site win the Eureka Prize.
