The 2021 Grad Slam Competition

This year, we had 50 submissions that wowed our judges who shared how incredibly impressed they were with all of the student competitors. On March 8th, we showcased the 10 finalists' videos during our Final Round livestream event and announced the 2021 winners:

  • Grad Slam Champion: Logan Kozal (Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology)
  • Runner-Ups: Deeksha Dangwal (Computer Science), Nora Wolcott (Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology), and Katelyn Zigner (Geography)
