Sentient would like to announce the opening of the 2015 Student Essay Competition.
The Sentient Executive invites veterinary students to submit essays considering the welfare and ethical issues that affect animals used in food production, experimentation or entertainment.
Essays must meet the following objectives:
Identify an area of animal use that concerns you on welfare and ethical grounds, and discuss the role of the veterinary profession in addressing these issues.
We encourage students to select their own topics within this guideline, because we believe this will foster the most impassioned and creative submissions.
The winning essays must demonstrate critical analysis of the identified issues, ethical consideration for the animals concerned, and a discussion of the role of the veterinary profession, including the application of animal welfare science to develop potential solutions. Essays may also include a personal reflection on the topic.
All essays are to be submitted by Close of Business, 31 January 2016.
