The One Health Day Coordinating Team enthusiastically announces the winners of the 2017 One Health Day Student Events Competition. Competing groups had to meet a set of qualifying criteria and were required to submit a post-event summary. The One Health Day organizers were impressed with the work of the Student Event teams, and, based on an objective assessment, two teams are each being awarded a $2,000 prize. The winning 2017 One Health Day Student Event Competition teams are: the Makerere University One Health Student Innovation Club, which organized a Rabies Vaccination and Awareness Campaign in Uganda, and Iowa One Health for organizing the second Iowa One Health Conference.
Prizes will be officially awarded during a live event at the 5th International One Health Congress, which will be held in Saskatoon, Canada, from 22 to 25 June 2018. The 2018 One Health Day Student competition will be launched in early April and will have a slightly different set of requirements.
