Student Day

Please join us on Monday December 11 for the International Arctic Change 2017 Student Day, an event that is expected to be one of the largest international gatherings of students engaged in Arctic research.

Held in a one-day format, Student Day will provide an exciting opportunity for students from around the world to build and strengthen relationships, partake in dynamic discussions and learn from each other’s research experiences. Student Day is open to all interested individuals and we welcome the participation of students, researchers and representatives from northern communities, Inuit organizations, government and industry.

The program for International Arctic Change 2017 Student Day will be posted in Fall 2017.

Student Elevator Pitch Contest

New this year, Student Day participants will have the opportunity to promote their science by means of an Elevator Pitch. Contestants will have one minute and one slide to pitch their research project and pique the public’s curiosity. Judges will award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes to the top elevator pitches, and video versions of the pitches will be available for a People’s Choice Award. All awards will be presented at the Gala Banquet on Thursday, 14 December 2017.
