SSHRC Storytellers contest for Students

SSHRC has recently launched its annual Storytellers contest, challenging postsecondary students to show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research affects our lives, our world and our future prosperity.                                      

The contest is open to all students, graduate and undergraduate, enrolled at Canadian postsecondary institutions. Their task is to tell the story, in 3 minutes or 300 words, of a SSHRC-funded research project—their own or a professor’s—taking place at their institution. We will select 25 finalists to receive a $3000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications. For details on this year’s Storytellers contest and our upcoming special prize to celebrate Canada’s 150th year, please follow us on Twitter, watch for the #SSHRCStorytellers hashtag, and visit the SSHRC website.
