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.
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.
