The American Academy of Health Behavior invites graduate students and newly graduated post-doctoral professionals within 2-years of their post doctoral degree and not yet in a tenure-track position to participate in the annual 3-minute Thesis Competition at the 2020 AAHB Annual Meeting in Napa, California. The 3-minute Thesis is an academic competition that challenges presenters to deliver compelling oration on their research agenda, highlighting the significance and impact of their research in no more than 180 seconds using a single slide.
The competition will be held on Sunday, March 8, 2020.
There will be a Judges’ Winner and Runner-up and a People’s Choice Winner!
Presentations are limited to 3 minutes. With 30 seconds to go, the timekeeper will notify the presenter. A bell chimes at the end of the 3-minute period. If a competitor continues to speak after the bell chimes, he or she is disqualified from the competition. Presentations are considered to have commenced when a presenter starts his or her presentation through either movement or speech.
Competitors will be notified of the status of their submission by February 17, 2020. If entered into the competition, it is expected that you will register for and attend the conference. We look forward to seeing you in Napa, California!
