Elnahla’s video is being entered into the Provincial competition, and the winner of that virtual competition should be announced in January. Further to the competition rules, we will share her video once the provincial results have been announced.

Founded by the University of Queensland in Australia, 3MT celebrates graduate student research and takes place at universities around the world. Participants have to summarize their research in no more than 180 seconds.

The judges scored the 12 competitors on best communication style, comprehension, and engagement for a chance to win $1,000 (first), $500 (second) and $250 (third).
