Categories and Prizes

Three (3) $500 “Outstanding Presentation” prizes will be awarded per category


  • PhD
  • MS
  • BS


  • Presentations will be limited to 5 minutes, followed by Q&A from the judges.
  • As a general rule, you should plan on approximately one slide per minute, meaning you should limit yourself to 5-8 slides, especially if they require significant explanation. There is no hard limit on number of slides, but the 5-minute time limit is strict, and you will be cut off at 5 minutes, so plan accordingly.
  • Slides must be submitted to the Dropbox by March 31 at 8:00 AM. Link:
    • Files must be in PowerPoint format
    • Files must contain your name
