VIN Foundation Announces 3rd Annual Solutions for the Profession Competition

Third annual essay competition provides veterinary students with an opportunity to shed light on the impact of practice consolidation within the profession.

The VIN Foundation is excited to announce its third annual Solutions for the Profession Competition. The essay competition this year asks veterinary students to share their views on the impact of practice consolidation, both positive and negative on the profession.
The first competition contest challenged students to provide innovative solutions to problems they see facing the veterinary profession. The majority of submissions addressed student debt, gender inequality, and mental health. Last year’s competition asked students to share what they wish they knew before applying to veterinary school.
VIN Foundation’s Board Chairman, Dr. Richard Headley, stated “I am excited the VIN Foundation is able to shed light on this important topic and hopefully find ways to positively impact the profession for future generations.”
Three entrants will win cash scholarships to help support tuition and education-related expenses:
  • First place: $3,000
  • Second place: $1,500
  • Third place: $1,000
The VIN Foundation Solutions for the Profession Committee will select the top entries in the first round of judging. These essays will be assessed by experts in the topic area, who will pass the top choices to three well-known leaders in the veterinary profession. These final judges will determine the winners.
