Presented by ABB OPTICAL GROUP and Paragon Vision Sciences, the University Education Challenge is a program designed to support the optometrists of tomorrow!

The program and participant requirements were announced in June 2015 at the annual Association of Optometric Contact Lens Educators (AOCLE) conference. Participation was limited to the first eight optometry schools to register by August 1st, 2015. The winning school will receive a $5,000 unrestricted educational grant!

Each participating school will select a team from its third-year class to create a 45-to-60 minute live, online presentation on any topic relating to contact lenses. The presentations, held monthly from September through April, will be judged on overall webinar attendance and scores of a post-webinar survey that will be emailed to all attendees who viewed the presentation.

The winning team will be announced at the 2016 Association of Optometric Contact Lens Educators (AOCLE) meeting. In addition to the $5,000 unrestricted educational grant presented to the winning school, ABB OPTICAL GROUP and Paragon Vision Sciences also will award $500 to the winning team.

Students from the IU School of Optometry Contact Lens Club will be representing IUSO Wednesday, September 30 at 9:00pm EDT. Register today and support the IU School of Optometry students!
