TikTOX – CEW 2022 Student Science Communication Competition

Watch the CEW 2021 TikTOX here: YouTube Link

This year’s CEW invites all BSc, MSc, and PhD student attendees to compete in our TikTOX competition. This is a unique challenge for students to be clear and concise in their science communication! The topic can be the same as the content in a platform or poster presentation, or about your thesis topic in general. Due to the hybrid nature of CEW 2022, all TikTOX videos will be pre-recorded, judged online by non-students, and played live for all attendees during the Tuesday lunch.

All students are encouraged to apply for the competition by selecting “Yes” to participate and including a tentative title when completing their CEW registration form.


  • 3-minute presentation maximum
  • Animations and footage of field and lab work allowed
  • All TikTOX presentations will will need to be uploaded ahead of time but will be played live at CEW 2022
  • Judging will take place ahead of time using a standardized rubric (linked below)
