Great Research Matters

How you tell its story
is just as important


SSHRC’s annual Storytellers contest challenges postsecondary students to show Canadians how social sciences and humanities research is affecting our lives, our world and our future for the better.

We’re looking for storytellers and data journalists, social media masters and aspiring filmmakers.

Your challenge? In three minutes or 300 words, tell Canadians about a great SSHRC-funded project happening at your school.

The project can be yours or it can be a professor’s (get their permission first!), but your story should be creative, compelling and clear.

Imagining Canada’s Future

For Canada to be successful in the 21st century, we need to anticipate the challenges ahead and keep our minds open to the potential futures facing us all. This is the inspiration behind SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative.
