If you think writing your thesis is hard, try effectively explaining it in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience – in just 180 seconds and with only one slide! Thirteen of our members did just that, with clear and concise presentations on a number of complex issues.

The grand prize went to Sarah Carson for “The New Girls' Club: Gendered Leadership, Political Party Culture, and the Women Changing the Face of U.S. Politics.” First runner up went to Kayleigh Meighan for “Where does the newborn baby sleep? Prevalence and predictors of postpartum co-sleeping practices after midwife-led births in the United States.” The second runner up was a tie between Jueun Lee for “What is your Personal Color? Skilled Vision for Color and Beauty Meets Makeover Culture in South Korea,” and Lindsay Fournier for “Where Did All The Children's Health Programs Go? An Evaluation of a County Health Department.”

Judges for the Three Minute Thesis competition, sponsored by the National Institute of Social Sciences, hailed from several top media outlets including NPR, Vox, and Science Magazine.
