 Science, engineering fair award increased

Posted Dec. 15, 2007

The Executive Board approved an increase in funding of the AVMA Special Awards presented at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair to encourage achievement of young people in science, math, and engineering.

Previously, the AVMA offered one award of $1,000 and four awards of $700 each. Following the board's approval, the Association will now offer five awards at $1,000 each. The Council on Communications put forward the recommendation.

The AVMA has presented special awards for excellence in the fields of food animal health, animal health, public health, comparative medicine, and biomedical research to students around the globe for the past 41 years at the fair.
