Mark your calendars – the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) final competition is coming up soon.
The ninth annual 3MT competition is happening live on YouTube at 7 p.m. on April 21. Twelve graduate students chosen from three heats held in March will be presenting their thesis research in just three minutes to a panel of judges and a virtual audience.
The master’s and doctoral students are competing for the Dr. Archie McNicol Prize for First Place ($2,500), the UM Retirees Association Prize for Second Place ($1,250) and Third Place ($750). The online audience will vote for the People’s Choice award (UM Bookstore gift certificate). The winner of this event will advance to the Western Canada regional online competition on May 13 and have the chance to be featured in a non-competitive showcase of 3MT videos from graduate students across Canada.
