Veterinary technician contest underway
A new nationwide contest called “Why I Love Being a Vet Tech” is honoring the work of veterinary technicians. Pets Best Insurance and the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America are sponsoring the contest.
Veterinary technicians are invited to submit an essay of up to 250 words explaining why they chose their profession and why they love being a veterinary technician. Veterinary technicians may submit entries here; the submission deadline is Sept. 12.
A judging panel from Pets Best and NAVTA will review the essays and select eight finalists. The public will then have the opportunity to vote online at the Pets Best website and Facebook page from Sept. 26-Oct. 10.
The finalist who earns the most votes in the online poll will win a paid trip to the North American Veterinary Community Conference next January in Orlando, Florida. Finalists will also each win $200 plus a one-year NAVTA membership.
