2021 Grad Slam Winner - Amelia Munson

Congratulations to Amelia Munson, Ph.D. Candidate in Animal Behavior, the 2021 UC Davis Grad Slam Final Round winner! She earned a $2,500 grand prize and the opportunity to advance to the University of California Grad Slam competition on May 7 with her winning presentation “Fact or Fiction: What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger."  Despite the virtual format, this year's Grad Slam competition was the largest on record, with more prize money and even more attendees.
