Cheer on your peers from across the University as they present their research in 3 minutes with only their words and a single presentation slide! Judges will choose the first- and second-place winners but we need YOU to help choose the Audience Choice winner!

A reception will be held after the competition for students, staff, and faculty to mingle with the presenters. Please RSVP so we have an accurate headcount for catering or to receive the livestream link.
