Two-Minute Pitch Your Poster Contest

Calling all students and postdocs with an innovative idea to share: Participate in the Two-Minute Pitch Your Poster Contest during Innovation Week. The goal of this fast-paced contest is to engage your audience and explain your research, idea or innovation in two minutes or less—and to do it jargon-free. Faculty and staff members from across the university will judge the competition and award 10 participants $1,000 each. Participate as a student/postdoc presenter or as an innovation enthusiast—all members of the campus community are welcome to attend. 

The contest will be held Friday, Sept. 16, from 12:30 to 3 p.m. in the Thwing Center ballroom.

Free lunch with sliders, a build-your-own mac-and-cheese bar and dessert will be included (vegan options available). RSVP for the Two-Minute Pitch Your Poster Contest.
