What is the ASCB Elevator Speech Contest?

Imagine a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explain your science to someone influential, but you only have 90 seconds…do you know what you would say?

ASCB’s annual Elevator Speech Contest is a video competition where you take a video of yourself “selling” your science in 90 seconds. It’s a great way to practice your science communication skills and get recognized in the process. Looking for examples? See Elevator Speeches from previous finalists.

Three finalists will be given recognition and prizes at the annual meeting and will be referenced later on the ASCB website.

When are winners announced?

The Elevator Speech Contest awards will be given out at the ASCB|EMBO Meeting. While at the meeting it’s highly recommended that you attend the Advocacy Toolbox session, where you will learn great tips for effective science communication and give yourself an edge above the competition.

How do I submit?
