Each student who entered the competition was
required to submit a scientific paper of 3,000-3,500 words on an issue relating
to natural solutions to animal health challenges. The four finalists will be
asked to submit a scientific poster and presentation to a panel of judges during
Alltech’s Symposium and will be competing for a scholarship valued at $5,000

The competition, currently in its third year, provides a forum for
undergraduate students throughout the world to interact with one of the leading
players in the animal feed industry while strengthening their research skills.
The 2008 program drew 727 entries from over 80 distinguished universities around
the world, more than doubling the participation level in 2007.
