SSHRC’s Storytellers Challenge asks postsecondary students (undergraduate and graduate) to show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research is affecting our lives, our world and our future for the better.
Tell SSHRC about a great SSHRC-funded project happening at UCalgary. Your story must be compelling, creative and clear.
Create a three-minute video or audio clip, or 300-word text or infographic.
Feature your own research or a supervisor’s (make sure you get permission).
Discover resources available on campus to help you create your entry.
The top 20 finalists receive $3,000.
The top 20 finalists can attend a virtual communications workshop to help them prepare their story to present at the Storytellers Showcase (attendance is optional).
The top 20 finalists will present their story in front of a live audience at the Storytellers Showcase (at a location in Canada to be determined), for a chance to be a Final Five winner and win an additional $1,000.
One of the top 20 finalists will have the opportunity to receive an additional $1,000 through the engagement prize. The finalist must participate and attend the Storytellers Showcase in order to be eligible to win the engagement prize.
The deadline to submit your story is Tuesday, January 16, 2024, 6 p.m. MT
Judging and prizes for this competition are administered by SSHRC
