Environmental Grad Blitz

Grad Blitz Logo


What is the Environmental Grad Blitz?

The Blitz is designed to bring together graduate students working on environment-related research and arts to showcase their research findings and creative works. The event provides a special opportunity for students to share their work with students, faculty, university administrators, and others. The Blitz provides a unique milieu for discovering opportunities for collaboration, sharing ideas and insights, and making acquaintances that may live long beyond the careers of the individual participants. Participants must be in a graduate degree or certificate program.

Fall 2014: Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014, 2-6PM, Student Union South Ballroom

About the Format

The idea is for graduate students to present only their most salient findings to generate curiosity and excitement about their research, or to give a brief and engaging creative presentation of five minutes or less.

Blitz participants may present their results in one of two ways:
• A five-minute speed talk/creative presentation, including no more than three slides
• A traditional research poster or visual art/creative piece


$200 will be awarded for the best presentation and best poster in both the research and creative categories.
The honorable mention in each format will be awarded $100.
