'Exceptional young vets' sought for BVA award
The award highlights young vets who are making a valuable contribution across the profession.
BVA Young Vet of the Year Award 2020 now open for nominations.

Nominations are now open for the BVA Young Vet of the Year Award 2020.

Each year, the award highlights young vets who are making a valuable contribution across the profession. Last year's winner, Emily Craven, was nominated for her passion for animal welfare, enthusiasm for farm practice, and for going above-and-beyond in her call of duty.

The award forms part of an ongoing collaboration between the BVA and Zoetis to recognise, support and champion to essential work of young vets in the UK. The only award of its kind, it is open to all RCVS-registered vets in the first eight years of their careers.

The nominated person can be from any veterinary sphere, including research, education or veterinary politics. Organisers are seeking an 'exceptional young vet' whose work is recognised within the workplace or who has benefited the veterinary community.

“After such a successful launch of this award last year it’s really exciting to be inviting entries for 2020,” commented BVA president Daniella Dos Santos.

“It’s more important now than ever that we recognise and celebrate the huge contribution that young vets are making across the workforce in these challenging and uncertain times. I’m confident that we’ll once again see a really high standard of entries from across the veterinary community, and would encourage everyone to put themselves or a colleague forward if they fit the bill to be considered for this unique and prestigious award.”

BVA and Zoetis will jointly announce the winner in November, and the winner will receive a prize of £1000 cash and 'a career-enhancing experience' with Zoetis.

The deadline for nominations is Monday 7 September. For more information about the award and to make a nomination, click here
