March 22: Three Minute Thesis to return as part of Showcase

By C. Brandon Chapman, College of Education

Emily-JohnsonPULLMAN, Wash. – Three Minute Thesis (3MT) will be part of Washington State University’s annual Showcase celebration of excellence on Tuesday, March 22. Prizes, in the form of travel awards for research conferences, will be $3,000 for the winner, $1,500 for second place and $500 for third.

Emily Johnson, College of Pharmacy, won last year’s contest, in which doctoral students present their research/scholarship concisely – in no more than three minutes – to a non-specialist audience.

“As a top research institution, we value our doctoral students gaining their own research experience,” said Erica Austin, interim co-provost. “But even more, learning how to communicate our research, often times in plain talk and in a succinct manner, will be vital for helping solve our societal grand challenges.”

Winners from events at the college level move on to the universitywide competition. Learn more at http://3mt.wsu.edu/.

3MT began at the University of Queensland (Australia) in 2008. In spring 2014, the WSU College of Education hosted the first 3MT event at WSU; in 2015, the contest expanded to all colleges.
