Experience academic excellence with the PhD3D Competition

Join the McDonnell Academy 5th-year PhD students at the upcoming PhDin3D Competition.

Similar to the University of Queensland’s 3MT Competition, this event promises an evening of engaging presentations based on research being conducted at WashU.

April 10, 2024 | 5:30 PM
Charles F. Knight Center, Room 210
Danforth Campus

Brilliant minds, groundbreaking research, and just three minutes to captivate the audience. With a single static slide, our PhD scholars will deliver succinct and compelling presentations, shedding light on the significance of their work free from the complexities of disciplinary terminology.

But it’s not just about showcasing research

It’s about effective communication. Judges will evaluate participants based on their ability to remove technical language, convey their message clearly to a diverse audience, and foster engagement throughout their presentation.

Cash prizes will be awarded to first place and runner-up winners. Plus, the audience will have the opportunity to vote for the People’s Choice Award.
