Good morning, everyone! We hope this message finds you well.
TGSA has an exciting opportunity and announcement to share with all of you. The Toronto School of Theology and the Graduate Center for Theological Studies will be “piloting” its first Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) at the end of March 2022. 3MT invites graduate students to explain their thesis to a general audience and group of judges in three minutes using only one static PowerPoint slide. The competition helps graduate students improve their oral presentation skills, profile their research, and learn more about the ideas in their communities. The TST and the GCTS will be offering the following prizes:
First Place: $1,000
Second Place: $500
Third Place: $250
People’s Choice: $50
The eligibility criteria will be parallel to those of the University of Toronto—so all registered graduate students are eligible to participate—except that, as a “pilot,” the competition will be limited to the first twenty students who sign up.
Please see attached the full description of the TST 3MT as it includes resources to learn more and the link to register. Our first step is to have graduate students sign up to participate in the competition. Once we have finalized the list of students interested, the TST and the GCTS will be able to create a schedule for the preliminary heats. The sooner you sign up the better!
