And it's not just ​bragging rights that are ​at stake: the grand prize winner will receive $5,000, with $2,000 and $1,000 prizes for the runners-up. There will also be a People's Choice vote this year, and the winner of that will receive $1,000 – so be sure to tune in to the live-stream coverage of the event and vote for Leah! More information on how to view and vote will be available here once the competition starts.

Additionally, we will be hosting a viewing party at the Graduate Student Resource Center (Student Resource Building, Room 1215) if you'd like to stop by and ​​watch the live-stream with us!
