Date of Competition: Tuesday, March 8, 2022
The Three Minute Research (3MR) is an academic competition that cultivates graduate students' presentation and research communication skills, and challenges them to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. The competition is open to all graduate students of Lakehead University, and they have to explain their research or scholarly/creative activity through a video presentation of up to three minutes.
In support of Year of Climate Action, this year's Research and Innovation Week Student Showcase has created a special category. Students whose research projects reference or involve climate change and climate action are invited to tag their research presentations under the special category of YOCA (Year of Climate Action).
Research presentations that are tagged under the special category of YOCA will compete in an additional pool. Research projects will be judged by the LUSU Sustainability Coordinator, the University Sustainability Coordinator, and a student member of the YOCA Coordinating Committee. The awarded presentation will receive a gift certificate to a local food market.
Shaw Spotlight brings to life compelling human-interest stories from our communities in diverse short-form documentaries. We are proud to provide each category winner of Lakehead University’s 3MR competition an opportunity to be highlighted in a Shaw Spotlight feature. Each category winner will work with a Shaw Spotlight producer to tell their story and share their project, nationwide.
