[Lexington, KENTUCKY] – Entering into its sixth year, the Alltech Young Scientist Program is offering the opportunity for students with an interest in the field of science to blossom. This innovative contest gives college co-eds the chance to be recognized and win prizes for their writing of topics dealing with animal feed technologies.
“Education begins with children, but it shouldn’t stop there,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “The Alltech Young Scientist Program ensures that students pursuing degrees in science are recognized. This program has continued to have an increase in entries every year with our goal being 50,000 entries in the next few years.”
Michael Steele, from the University of Guelph in Canada, was the 2010 graduate winner and won with a groundbreaking research paper that examined the molecular mechanisms underlying rumen epithelial adaption to high grain diets in dairy cattle. more
