1. Student Sponsorship
Students can apply to be sponsored to attend the conference by writing a short essay.
If your essay is chosen to be sponsored your conference registration, hotel, and meals will be covered for the two-day conference!
Alberta Farm Animal Care will pair student delegates with sponsor organizations through a competition process during which students will write short essays on the topic: “25 Years of Change In the Agricultural Industry” to help celebrate AFAC’s 25th year. Essays should be a maximum of 2 pages and include a section detailing professional goals and a discussion of how participation in LCC will advance professional skills, contacts, and knowledge with regard to a particular commodity group (or species) and the field of animal care/welfare. Remember to include your name, program, and school on your application. Sponsorship will include registration, meals, and shared accommodation for 1 night. Transportation to and from the conference is the student’s responsibility.
Application Deadline: February 15th, 2018
The final way students can attend this year’s conference is through a discounted registration rate!
ALL students are encouraged to attend the
‘Meet the Experts Session’ on March 14 as well!
