Three Minute Thesis Contest
College of Arts and Sciences Pullman Qualifier
Friday, March 12, 2021
The 3MT research communication competition challenges PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes—and using just one visual slide—in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
3MT is not an exercise in trivializing or “dumbing down” research, but an opportunity for students to consolidate their ideas, their motivation and their research discoveries so they can be presented to a wider audience.
The winner of 1st Place in the CAS Pullman competition will receive a $1,000 award and advance to the WSU 3MT Competition on March 24. The Runner-up and People’s Choice winners each will receive a $500 award.
