America's Favorite Veterinarian Contest

Do you think your veterinarian is special? Then it's time to recognize your special veterinarian and the wonderful things veterinarians do for our animals every day. Your veterinarian could be honored at this year's American Veterinary Medical Association convention in Chicago as America's Favorite Veterinarian.

Simply write a story of 250 words or less and submit it along with a photo of the pet alone or the pet with you or the veterinarian to the contest. Submit your entry by June 1, 2013 on the American Veterinary Medical Foundation Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/AVMFdn

Tell the judges why your veterinarian should be America's Favorite Veterinarian. Maybe he or she saved your pet's life, maybe he gave you encouragement when you needed it, or maybe she was able to repair a turtle's shell. The story can be touching, funny, wacky or off-beat. If it touches your heart, it probably will touch the judges' hearts, too. The judges will narrow the entries down to the final 12 and then you will be able to vote on who you think should be America's Favorite Veterinarian.

The winning veterinarian will be honored at the AVMF Impact and Partner Breakfast on July 21 during the AVMA Annual Convention. The winner and the person who submitted the story will each win a $250 cash prize. In addition, each will receive a free night's stay in Chicago plus travel expenses for those outside the area.

Start writing now and share your story with the world. Your veterinarian will be thrilled that you thought of him or her and you just might win.
