First year Gabrielle Wilkosz won the preliminary rounds for the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition and came in first place in the PhD Student and Masters Student Competition.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland which challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Clemson University’s Graduate Student Government and the Graduate School co-hosted Clemson’s first 3MT competition in April 2014 as one of the premier events of the University’s first Research and Innovation Month. Each entrant was judged on delivery and content by a panel of judges that included staff, faculty, and community members. Since, 3MT has become a traditional event for graduate researchers to give crisp presentations about the innovations happening in the university, with the winner representing Clemson University at the regional level competition.
The 2022 3MT® competition at Clemson University will be held in two stages – a college level preliminary round, and a final competition. It will also have two participant categories – a Doctoral Candidate group and a Graduate Student group. Preliminary level winners from each College will be drawn from both groups who will then go on to present at the 3MT finals on Nov 11 from 9-2 pm at the Watt Center Auditorium. 3MT® champions from both groups will receive $1000 apiece and the doctoral candidate winner will represent Clemson at the CSGS Regional competition in Spring 2023.
Congratulations, Gabrielle! Best wishes in the final round!
