Animal Welfare Judging Team
About the team
The Animal Welfare Judging Team is a new opportunity for Texas A&M students to participate in the International Animal Welfare Assessment Contest coordinated by the American Veterinary Medicine Association. Students evaluate the welfare of animals in hypothetical and live scenarios using science-based methods and reasoning. The species evaluated change each year, thus broadening the scope of knowledge gained through participation. Students can compete as a team or as an individual in one of three divisions: undergraduate, graduate, and veterinary. More information about the competition can be found at https://awjac.org/
At the current time, there is no required course that students should enroll in to participate in the competition. Team members will receive training by actively participating in meetings at least once a week with their coach in addition to outside preparation deemed necessary.
