UT undergrad researchers are invited to submit a 2-minute research video and compete for $5,000 in the Texas Student Research Showdown.

The top videos receive prizes recognizing their excellence in research communication — $2,500, $1,000, and $500 for the top three. In addition, students may choose to compete in an “audience choice” competition, with a $1,000 prize for the winner.
