Often, we only have approximately 45 seconds to make an impression. Those seconds are often referred to as your "elevator speech." Therefore, we're giving you the opportunity develop and hone your skills with our Elevator Speech contest. This fun, yet practical, competition will be held on Tuesday, November 5 from 5:30-6:45 pm. Contestants will have 45 seconds (and only 45 seconds) to concisely yet conversationally talk about who they are and their research.
How does it work? When a contestant is called up for their turn in the "elevator," they will be randomly assigned one of the following audiences:
The speeches will be judged and fun prizes will be awarded. This fast paced contest is a must! Spots are limited and sign-up is required.
Compete against other grad students and post docs for cash prizes. This is also an opportunity to have your elevator speech heard and critiqued by a panel of judges from varied backgrounds.
