Launch of the SSHRC Storytellers Contest

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on November 12, 2019 in Announcements

SSHRC recently launched its annual Storytellers contest, challenging post-secondary students to creatively show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research has an impact on our lives and our communities.

The contest is open to all students - graduate and undergraduate - enrolled at Canadian postsecondary institutions. Their challenge is to tell the story, in 3 minutes or 300 words, of a SSHRC-funded research project - their own or a professor’s - taking place at their institution. SSHRC will select 25 finalists to receive a $3000 cash prize and specialized training in research communications. For details on this year’s Storytellers contest, please follow SSHRC on social media and visit the SSHRC website.

Spread the word to faculty who may wish to encourage a student to profile their SSHRC-funded research. You will find various promotional materials at the following link.

Should you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Sophie Boudreau ( or 613-992-5129).
