We are happy to partner with Royal Canin on this post, all opinions are our own.
Our girls are animal lovers, even from the time they were little, each of them loved animals. I always said that if any of my girls would become a veterinarian, it would be Mia, our youngest. To help foster her natural love for animals, we try to take all our girls to zoos and aquariums. With each of our kids, I always want to inspire whatever they are passionate about in life.
Does Your teen or tween want to become a veterinarian?
I had no idea that becoming a veterinarian was actually one of the top career choices for tweens and teens. One in five students wants to become a veterinarian, so it’s important to guide them toward their goals. This is something we do with each of our children, so I really love the idea behind the new contest from Royal Canin and Vet Set Go: the Become a Vet Camp Contest.
Vet Set Go is the first and only community dedicated to aspiring veterinarians, and they’ve teamed up with Royal Canin to give more students access to veterinary education. This contest will offer three children sixth through eighth grade the chance to win a coveted spot at Auburn University’s Junior Vet Camp from July 9-14, 2017. As one of the leading schools in its field, Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine is dedicated to not only producing passionate doctors, but encouraging the next generations of veterinarians to learn early.
The three grand prize winners will be chosen to attend the camp with free tuition, meals and housing to learn about veterinary medicine first-hand in classrooms, laboratories and outdoor facilities – giving young students a firsthand look at becoming at veterinarian.
Together Royal Canin and Vet Set Go want to inspire more students to reach for their dreams!
Your kiddo can enter the contest at www.vetsetgo.com/vetcampcontest between April 4 – May 4, 2017 – so there’s still time to enter!
Students, with the help of parents, will be asked to share a photo as well as their personal story – their love of animals and what inspires them to pursue a career as a veterinarian. Their story can include what they have done to get animal experience, how they have helped animals or how they are learning more about veterinarians.
