PAMCA: Win a student membership (deadline 16 December)

November 14, 2013 - 08:24 -- Bart G.J. Knols
Following a generous donation by Dr. Brian D. Anderson, the Pan-African Mosquito Control Association is pleased to announce an essay competition for award of 10 student memberships. The competition is open to African nationals studying an undergraduate or postgraduate programme at any higher learning institute.
 
Essays should be: a) written for a general rather than highly technical audience, b) on a topical issue concerning mosquitoes (which may include mosquito control or mosquito-borne diseases), c) maximum 500 words in either English, French or Portuguese. Essays will be judged based on topic, content and readability. The focus should be on creating an interesting and engaging short piece.
 
Student essays should be submitted to info@pamca.org by 16th December 2013. Undergraduate and post-graduate entries will be judged separately. Winners will receive one year of membership to PAMCA. Winning essays will be featured on www.pamca.org and MalariaWorld along with the student biography. Further details are included in the attachment. Queries should be directed to info@pamca.org
 
Remember to mention MalariaWorld when you submit your essay.
 
Best regards,
