Student Competition - One Health Commission

Student Competition

While anyone can participate, One Health Day especially encourages students (secondary, undergraduate, graduate, professional) to set up One Health events that facilitate student delegates working together from different academic disciplines/backgrounds. For fun and added incentive, student teams organizing an event for One Health Day may (if desired, not required) enter their event to compete for cash prizes. Winning events will be selected by a jury of One Health leaders. In 2021 a Student Event award of $1,000 each will go to one competing student group so competition across global regions will be strong this year.

Student teams wishing to compete are urged to closely follow competition instructions and checklist for their events to qualify.
