OSU-CHS students must register online to participate in the preliminary Three Minute Thesis competition by Wednesday for the chance to represent the campus in the OSU-wide competition.
The OSU-CHS preliminary competition is set for noon in D107 on Thursday, Feb. 18 during the annual OSU in Tulsa Research Day. Master’s and doctoral student contestants must give a compelling pitch for their thesis in three minutes using only one PowerPoint slide. The contest is aimed at developing students’ skills in relaying their research and its relevance in a cogent but concise manner.
Judges will select a first, second and third place winner. Audience members will vote for the “People’s Choice” award. The first-place winner will win $300, second place wins $200 and third place wins $100. The “People’s Choice” winner gets $300. The first-place winner will compete against other OSU students in the finals at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 3 at the Student Union Little Union Theater at OSU-Stillwater.
