SSHRC Storytellers Contest

SSHRC launched its annual Storytellers contest, challenging postsecondary students to creatively demonstrate to Canadians how social sciences and humanities research has an impact on our lives and on our communities.

The contest is open to all studentsgraduate and undergraduate—enrolled at Canadian postsecondary institutions. Their task is to tell the story, in 3 minutes or 300 words, of a SSHRC-funded research project. It can be their own or a professor’s and needs to be taking place at their institution. We will select 25 finalists to receive a $3000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications. Deadline to submit entries is January 31, 2019.
