Mark your calendars, Grad Slam is almost here!
Grad Slam is a campus-wide competition for the best three-minute talk by a graduate student. There are three rounds of presentations – preliminary, semifinal, and final – and prizes are given at each stage of advancement. Participants are judged on the basis of having a clear and effective presentation that is geared for a general university audience and has demonstrable intellectual significance.
This year, the Graduate Division will award more than $15,000 in cash and prizes, and all entrants will receive a custom mug and tote bag. The preliminary rounds start next Monday, April 10. The competition also features a People's Choice component, where audience members select their favorite presenters in each of the preliminary round and the winner will advance to the next round. So be sure to check out the full prelim schedule and come out and support your friends and fellow grads!
