Two students advance to 3MT regionals

This year's Royal Roads 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) competition attracted a tough group of competitors with two students taking top honours at the March 13 event.

Doctor of Social Sciences student Monica Hinton won for her 180-second presentation of 'Warrior Tenacity and Medical Stigma: Facilitators to Military Mental Health Services.' Master of Arts in Disaster and Emergency Management student David Simms secured second place for his presentation, 'Inuit Knowledge Transforming Search & Rescue in Arctic Canada.'

Hinton and Simms move on to the 2019 Western 3MT Competition at the University of Northern British Columbia Wednesday, April 17. Regional winners will advance to compete internationally.

Each year, Royal Roads thesis and dissertation students take part in the 3 Minute Thesis competition, which was founded by the University of Queensland in 2008. More than 600 universities in 65 countries participated this year. The Canadian competitions are sponsored by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies. The Royal Roads competition is organized by the Office of the Vice-Provost, Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies.
