In October, the results of ESA’s 2020 YouTube Your Entomology Contest will be announced. Today, the four finalist entomology videos have been named, and we’re sharing them here on Entomology Today.

Since 2009, ESA has hosted its annual video contest, which has drawn submissions from a broad range of entomologists on a wide variety of topics, to promote the use of video to showcase the world of insect science. In 2020, 14 entomology videos were submitted for consideration (see the full playlist of entries). Judges narrowed down the entrants to four finalists, which you can watch below.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place selections, plus one honorable mention, will be announced in October and acknowledged during the ESA Professional Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, November 18, during the Entomology 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting.

ESA thanks all entrants to the contest as well as the judging committee members: Marlin Rice (chair), Jeff Bradshaw, Laura Higgins, Erin Hodgson, Clinton Pilcher, and Carol Pilcher.
