The "elevator speech" comes from the business world, where a chance encounter with a potential investor, employer or other VIP on the elevator provides the opportunity to make a brief pitch about yourself or your idea. The SNR Elevator Speech Contest provides an opportunity to practice presenting your research to non-scientists.
The SNR Elevator Speech Contest is held in conjunction with the undergraduate and graduate Poster Contest sponsored by the SNR Graduate Student Association. Public viewing and voting begins at 6 p.m.
If you have questions about the event, please contact Mark Burbach at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-472-8210, or Kevin Pope at email@example.com or 402-472-7028.
