Le français suit.

Dear Colleague :

 

On November 19, SSHRC will launch its fourth annual Storytellers challenge.Over the years the contest has been a tremendous success, thanks in large part to the engagement of institutions in promoting it.

 

As always, we welcome your collaboration. At the following link, you will find various promotional materials: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j64kq9zd7zp3sme/AAD-DKE3APNN8LAM9QSvpLTva?dl=0

 

I encourage you to share this information with your colleagues in research offices, graduate offices and faculties, and to promote the contest to your students to give them their best chance at success. Together, we will be enhancing excellence in research communications while promoting the very best research in social sciences and humanities across the country.

 

The contest is open to all students, graduate and undergraduate, enrolled at Canadian postsecondary institutions. Their task is to tell the story, in 3 minutes or 300 words, of a SSHRC-funded research project—their own or a professor’s. Each year, we select 25 finalists to receive a $3000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications.
