Want some help perfecting your elevator speech? Being able to summarize your scientific research concisely and eloquently is crucial—whether you’re speaking to a family member, neighbor, or politician.

First attend the Advocacy Toolbox organized by ASCB’s Public Policy Committee at the 2017 ASCB|EMBO Meeting, to learn tips on how to improve your talking points. Then take a 90-second video of yourself and enter the Elevator Speech Contest. The winner and runner-up will receive portable Bluetooth speakers at the meeting in December.
