Thesis papers and dissertations—the marathon closures of Masters and Doctoral degrees—can run up to 350 pages. So it's perhaps no surprise that condensing that much material into a three-minute presentation and single PowerPoint slide can make for a cutthroat competition. On Tuesday, Feb. 12, 15 grad students from University of Idaho, Boise State University and Idaho State University will duke it out on stage at The Egyptian, doing just that in the hopes of scoring cash prizes. A panel of judges will award first, second and third place nods and the audience will vote on a People's Choice winner, who will score a first place-tying $500. Drop by for a crash-course in, well, everything.
