High school juniors and seniors are invited to submit an original review paper. They can choose a subject from a list of 12 topics related to sleep medicine and sleep research.
“This contest is an excellent opportunity to introduce students to some of the fascinating aspects of sleep and sleep disorders,” said AASM President Dr. Clete Kushida.
The contest offers a first-place prize of a $1,000 U.S. savings bond. The winning student and one parent or guardian also will receive a three-day/two-night trip to San Antonio in June.
Deep in the heart of Texas, San Antonio offers visitors a dynamic experience. Popular attractions include the Alamo, Six Flags and SeaWorld.
San Antonio will host the SLEEP 2010 24th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies LLC in June. At this meeting the contest winner will be recognized by the AASM.
Prizes also will be awarded for second place, third place and honorable mention. All award recipients will have their paper posted on the AASM Web site at www.sleepeducation.com.
