Is Pleased to Announce the
HENRY M. LAWICKI ANNUAL STUDENT/INTERN COMPETITION

The Henry M. Lawicki Student/Intern Competition is a regular part of the ANNUAL MEETING of the Illinois Mosquito and Vector Control Association (IMVCA) held in November each year. In past years, up to $500 in cash prizes have been awarded to winners.

Criteria: The competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in public or private schools and to interns of Local Health Departments or Mosquito Abatement Districts. The topic can address any area of mosquito, tick or other vector biology, ecology, and relationships to disease or control.

Process: On the morning of the annual meeting, entrants present a ten-minute talk about their topic and answer a few questions. Then, they are welcome to stay for the meetings and other activities including the meals giving ample opportunity to network with and learn from parties interested in mosquito and vector control.
