A “Fans’ Favorite” winner will be awarded to the entry receiving the most Facebook “likes” on the AALAS Foundation’s “Set Sail with Lab Animal Science” Facebook photo gallery by 11:00 am EST, October 31, 2018.


Further, AALAS members, their family and friends may “vote” on behalf of the boat entry of their choosing. Prior to the start of the 2018 National Meeting, the public will have an opportunity to go online to judge the boat entries and “vote” for their favorite entry.  A “vote” is a financial donation to the AALAS Foundation.  Each “vote” requires a minimum $5.00 donation. 


Beginning Sunday, October 28, 2018, attendees of the 2018 National Meeting will be able to “vote” ($5.00 minimum “vote”/donation) on behalf of their favorite boat entry at the AALAS Foundation Cup – Set Sail with Lab Animal Science” contest booth at the 2018 National Meeting in Baltimore, MD. All contest “voting”/donating ends Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. EST.
