The SciComm Hub is hosting a contest to see who can explain their research project in 1 minute or less! If you think you've got what it takes, send us a 1-minute video (via e-mail at of you describing your research project for a general audience. We will post your video on our Facebook and Twitter page. The video with the most combined Likes, Favorites, and re-tweets will win a $100 Amazon gift card! 

Here's an example of what we're looking for:

Be clear and concise, keep the jargon to a minimum, and remember to highlight all the things you find cool about your work! Don't use any fancy animations or visual aids - just explain your research in words as best you can.

If you don't know where to start, here's a guide with some suggestions!
