An outgrowth of CTAHR’s Student Research Symposium, the Three-Minute Elevator Pitch (3MEP) challenges the top 18 Research Symposium competitors to briefly and compellingly explain their research to a non-specialist audience using just one slide. Winners are recognized at CTAHR’s Annual Awards Banquet.

The first 3MEP was held in 2017 before a standing-room-only audience and guest judges from the campus and the community.
