If you have questions about the event, please contact:

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.

Held in conjunction with the undergraduate and graduate Poster Contest sponsored by the SNR Graduate Student Association.
