Academic Quadrathlon 2016 underway


July 18, 2016 – The American Society of Animal Science (ASAS) Academic Quadrathlon (AQ) competition is currently underway at Utah State University. Four undergraduate teams representing the Midwestern, Northeast, Southern, and Western sections are competing in lab practicums, written exams, oral presentations, and a quiz bowl. Teams from Chico State University, Purdue University, Texas A&M University, and the University of Rhode Island are competing to be the overall winner.

This evening the students will have a special opportunity to network with ASAS Board Members during a bowling and pizza mixer. The AQ competition culminates on Tuesday, July 19 with the Quiz Bowl Finals.

The AQ program is a platform to integrate more undergraduate involvement at our meetings. A special presentation will take place at the 2016 Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) during the ASAS Awards Program on Wednesday night to congratulate the AQ participants. Please join ASAS in supporting these young animal scientists!

The ASAS National Academic Quadrathlon is sponsored by Elanco Animal Health and National Block and Bridle.
