The science communication competition Rising Soil Stars allowed ten young researchers to pitch their work to a broad audience in just three minutes, using nothing but a single slide to support their talk. In the end, the jury and the audience decided who deserved the title of Rising Soil Star the most.
Participants of the Rising Soil Stars competition were sponsored through the Short Course and Conference Sponsorship Program of the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG). Through this sponsorship, each selected candidate received a €100 discount on their conference fee. Marie-Aude Hulshoff from EAG also generously agreed to act as one of the jury members during the competition.
The Rising Soil Stars were prepared for their pitch by Emma Holmes from EEH productions. Emma is a Wageningen-based performer, storyteller and trainer with ample experience in science communication. She sat with every participant separately, giving tips and tricks for their pitches, and hosted a group workshop in which participants could also practice on stage.
