The premise of the One-Minute Elevator Speech Contest is simple: The elevator door closes and you’ve got a trapped audience – a U.S. Senator, your dean, or Taylor Swift. Go for it! Sell your science in 60 seconds! Or if you’re attending ASCB 2016, you can sell your science in 60-second elevator speech selfie video and then compete for a pair of very cool, highly coveted Bluetooth headphones.
