AAEP is soliciting case study presentations from student members. The top three (3) student members will be given the opportunity to give a five-minute case study presentation at the Annual Convention, and the top ten (10) finalists will have their PowerPoint case study summaries digitally displayed throughout the event. This program will highlights involvement in student chapters and allow students to demonstrate initiative to future employers. Since students will be given the opportunity to formally present at the AAEP Annual Convention to student peers and DVMs in attendance, university administration may be more likely to allow students to attend the Convention with an acceptable reason to travel while school is in session. The top three students will be given complimentary Convention and Extended Student Program registration as well as a $300 travel stipend. Case presentations might include those seen in summer jobs or at veterinary school.

Submissions are due: September 30, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Top three (3) students will be eligible for both the display and presentation and will be notified on or before October 15 , 2019.
The remaining seven (7) finalists' case studies have the opportunity to be digitally displayed and will be notified by October 15 as well.
