NRTW® Contest Ends Aug. 31

Aug 13, 2014

The ASRT National Radiologic Technology Week® Strike a Pose Contest ends Aug. 31.

This year, NRTW will take place Nov. 2-8. The weeklong celebration recognizes the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety. The event takes place every November to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895.

Participants are asked to decorate a paper skeleton and incorporate it into a scene that represents this year’s NRTW theme, Many Views with One Vision. They must then take a photo or video of their creation and share it on Instagram using #MyNRTW.

Contest entries will be judged in the following categories: 

  • Most Popular – The entry that receives the most likes on Instagram will win.
  • Best Represents the NRTW Theme – A panel of ASRT staff radiologic technologists will select the entry that best represents this year’s theme.
  • Best Video Entry – A panel of ASRT staff radiologic technologists will select their favorite video submission.

Winners’ entries will be featured in the October/November issue of ASRT Scanner. Each winner will receive an NRTW prize package, a $100 American Express gift card and a free one-year membership to the ASRT.
