In the 1001 Word Challenge, the U.S. Department of Energy invited the 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers to represent their science using cartoons, photos, and original paintings, but any text could only use the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language plus one very important word: energy.

This challenge was inspired by Up Goer Five, a comic by where the cartoonist describes the workings of the Saturn V rocket using only the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language.

Check out the entries, including one by our very own Center for Molecular Electrocatalysis, at Each email address entered is allowed to vote for 3 entries, and voting closes on Tuesday, July 16 at 11:59 pm EST. Winners will be announced July 18, 2013. Please vote today!
