Call for participants: WiSys Quick Pitch @Home, deadline is May 1
UW-Green Bay student researchers could win $300 for presenting their research virtually in the WiSys Quick Pitch @ Home competition.
Students will “pitch” the value of their research in a recorded three-minute video that will be evaluated by a panel of judges. The goal is to inspire students to consider the impact of their work and improve their ability to communicate it broadly to the public. The deadline to register is Friday, May 1, 2020.
The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline, from STEM to Social Sciences and Humanities. Both basic and applied research projects are welcome. Also, students can present research at any stage of development (it does not need to be finished).
The first place finisher will secure a spot in the WiSys Quick Pitch State Final, which may also be held virtually later this summer.
WiSys Quick Pitches are normally held in-person on UW System campuses, but WiSys has shifted online in response to the coronavirus crisis.
