The contest is a fast-paced challenge to students to concisely explain how their research effects the average person. Participants will use a single presentation slide as a visual aid to engage with a non-specialst audience on their topic. Each student gets 60 seconds at the microphone to present at the annual Celebrate Ag Weekend pre-game breakfast.

This competition started in 2015 and highlights the extraordinary, versatile skills of our students.  

The 2022 winner was Taylor Kennedy, a graduate student in the Department of Land Resources and Enviornmental Sciences.
