Student Research Video Competition

This year the Cereals & Grains Association is launching a new Virtual competition in celebration of our Virtual Meeting: The Student Research Video Competition at Cereals & Grains 20!

This competition is sponsored by the Biomarker for Grains and Pulses Technical Committee and Cereals & Grains Association Corporate Sponsors. It provides a great opportunity for our students to apply their knowledge, skills and originality to show how their research fits into the greater food system in the form of a video.

You should create a video that is approximately 3 to 4 minutes in length that summarizes the significance of your research and how it fits in the food system. If possible, also explain how it contributes to the FAO Sustainable Development Goals.

Sounds like a lot to fit in 3 to 4 minutes? It is, but we have faith that you can be succinct and show deep insight by using your visual aids and presentation skills creatively, a key skill for any researcher!
