SSHRC launches student contest to promote liberal arts research

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has launched a contest that challenges post-secondary students to show Canadians how liberal arts research is “affecting our lives, our world and our future prosperity.”

SSHRC is accepting submissions from November 1 to January 15 in the form of a 3-minute pitch via podcast, op-ed, video, or infographic.

The top 25 finalists will receive registration and accommodation at SSHRC’s Congress 2014 conference in May, at which they will promote their project and participate in a research communications workshop. Five jury-chosen presenters will then be covered by national media, promoted by SSHRC, and showcased as part of the 2014 SSHRC Impact Awards ceremony.
