The challenge is to present complex research in an accessible and compelling way with the assistance of only one static slide. The competition celebrates exciting and innovative graduate student research while promoting communication, public speaking, and storytelling skills.

In support of the 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.  To register for this event, please complete the following form.

 Please submit via email to no later than Thursday February 10, 2022.
