1000 Word Challenge
Friday April 15th 1st, from 5:30-7:00 at the Burke Museum
Can you describe your research using the 1000 most common words in English? Could you do it better than your co-researcher? Would you like to hear from and meet graduate students from around the UW present their research in a fun and entertaining way?
Then come join us for the fourth annual 1000 Word Challenge and Happy Hour! Test to make sure your entry only uses the 1000 most common words. Then, when you’re ready, enter with your 1000 word and regular research description. (You’ll need to enter through UW email). Please fill out the entry by midnight Sunday April 11th to be considered for prizes, as voted on by the audience. First prize is a $100 gift certificate to the University Bookstore. Second and third prize winners get $50 and $25 respectively.
Last year, we had a lively competition (see information about the entries below (or click this link). There will be light and snacks to enjoy. You can purchase 2 glasses of wine or beer for $5. Come to hear your fellow graduate students, and enjoy meeting students from all around the college. We look forward to seeing you!
