Feedback form is now closed.
While the 3MT Competition has been occurring in the Graduate College at North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University for 4 years (2016-2019), librarians had not been asked to assist with judging until this past Spring 2019.

Approximately 15 Graduate and PhD candidates registered to compete. One librarian assisted in judging two qualifying rounds, where the field was cut to 10 participants. A second librarian assisted at this semi-final round to determine the 5 finalists. A third librarian assisted in judging the final round to determine the in-house winner (aka Judges' Choice).

After the "Judges’ Choice" was declared, a YouTube channel was created and the links to the 5 finalists' presentations were shared with friends, family, the campus community, and also the ELD-L and STS-L listservs. After 48 hours of open voting, a "People's Choice" winner was declared.

Librarians' enjoyed not only seeing the "fruits" of their research consultations on display, but also engaging with new researchers and their research.
