The Entomological Society of America has announced a video contest!

Members may submit entries of no more than two minutes in four different categories:

• Discovery (research-based)
• Instruction (teaching-based)
• Outreach (extension-based)
• Open category (anything goes, for the uber-creative entomologist)

All entries will be displayed on the ESA YouTube Channel, which will be accessible from the ESA website, and the winning entries will be shown at the Opening Session of the ESA Annual Meeting on Sunday, December 13, 2009, in Indianapolis.

I am hoping that they don’t actually limit it to active ESA members.

I did a bit of searching, and can’t seem to find an ESA YouTube account or Channel. I did accidentally find this video of an insect that smears itself with plant resin, which was pretty nifty.  Anyone know where the ESA channel is?
