On November 5, SSHRC launched its eighth annual Storytellers contest. SSHRC is once again challenging postsecondary students to show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research affects our lives and our world.

The contest is open to all students, graduate and undergraduate, enrolled at Canadian postsecondary institutions.Their task is to tell the story, in three minutes or 300 words, of a SSHRC-funded research project—their own or a professor’s. Each year, a jury selects 25 finalists to receive a $3,000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications. At the 2020 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, a second jury will select the final five winners, who will receive an expense-paid trip for their presentations to be featured at the prestigious SSHRC Impact Awards.

For further details on this year’s Storytellers contest, please follow us on social media and visit our website.

Should you have any questions, please email Storytellers@sshrc-crsh.gc.ca.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 28.
