The Hub Attention storytellers!

Attention storytellers!

Athabasca University students have an opportunity to put their storytelling skills to work, and possibly even win a cash prize.

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) has now launched its eighth annual Storytellers contest.

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.
