Sigma Xi Scientific Research Honor Society Opens Registration For 2017 Student Research Showcase

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. ― Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society invites high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to compete in its 2017 Student Research Showcase.
This unique opportunity helps students develop science communication skills. These skills help researchers share the value of their work with the public, supervisors, and organizations that can provide funding or social support for a project.
The Student Research Showcase is an online competition that is open to most research disciplines and to students anywhere in the world. Participants submit websites containing three main components: a research abstract, a technical slideshow, and a video. The video component challenges participants to present their research to a general audience.
During the judging period, more than sixty Sigma Xi members volunteer as judges to evaluate students’ submissions and engage in digital conversations with presenters through their websites. 

Participants compete for awards of up to $500 in high school, undergraduate, and graduate divisions. The winner of the People’s Choice Award is selected by a public vote and receives a $250 award.
