Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council 2017 Storytellers Contest

Memorial is looking to continue its tradition of excellence at a national research event.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) launched its 2017 Storytellers Contest on Nov. 28, challenging post-secondary students to demonstrate how social sciences and humanities research affects our world and future prosperity.

SSHRC is looking for students with a passion for storytelling.

The contest is open to graduate and undergraduate students at Canadian post-secondary institutions.

Their challenge is to tell a story — in a three minute video or 300 words — of a SSHRC-funded research project, either their own or a professor’s.

Top prizes

Each year, SSHRC selects 25 finalists to receive a $3,000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications. Contestants can submit entries as of Jan. 9, 2017, until the contest closes on Jan. 31.

To learn more about this year’s challenge, follow SSHRC’s Twitter feed and #SSHRCStorytellers and visit the SSHRC website.
