Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! We, the INSPIRE Team, have a lot of things to be thankful for this holiday season. One of these is the chance to study amazing subjects across the arts, humanities and social sciences here at MIT. We're also thankful to all of our sponsors to date, for believing in our endeavor and encouraging us to hold the competition. Finally, we're thankful to be in touch with you, especially now that we're receiving lots of abstract submissions with fanstatic ideas.

If you haven't yet submitted one, don't worry - there's still time! The first deadline is January 7th, and you have more than a month to put together your analyses, write up that report, and tell us about your findings. Simply fill up the form here. If you haven't started your project, now's the time to talk to your mentor, advisor, or teacher and quickly settle on a topic and get started.

Mentors and advisors are great resources when you have questions or get stuck along your research path, so let's be sure to also thank them for their committment to making us stronger and smarter individuals. You can also nominate them for the INSPIRE Mentor Award

While you're at it, let us know what you're thankful for. We'd love to hear from you!
