This year, the first ever America's Science Idol competition was held as part of the the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference. Contestants had 3 minutes to give a compelling presentation on the topic of their choice.

There was a crowd,  there were judges, competition was fierce, and then there was a winner: Tom Di Loberto, a meteorologist who gave a presentation about the difficulties of making a proper weather forecast.
