August 2, 2013
If you’re headed to Milwaukee for some cheese curds, beer and informative CE sessions…why not throw winning an ultrasound into the mix? Join us at AABP where we're giving away 2 Easi-Scan ultrasound packages!
If you’re not going to Milwaukee you’ll have to skip the cheese curds and beer, but you don’t have to miss the chance to win!
That’s right – the video contest is back!
We are giving away 2 systems to AABP members, just record a 1 minute video. The system includes an Easi-Scan, VGA BUG, batteries and charger. You can send the video before the show or record in our video booth at the show. Choose a topic below and start recording. We have also included a few other ideas to help get you started.
Last year's winner, veterinary student Sam Wicker from the University of Tennessee discussed his need for an Easi-Scan so he can continue his work abroad helping animals and people.

Be creative, UC Davis FARM Club certainly was and they won. In case you somehow missed it, watch how these “Cow-li-for-nia Girls” (and guy) won themselves an Easi-Scan.
Some tips from BCF for a great video
- Don’t just tell us show us!
- Just because you record in the video booth doesn’t mean you can't be creative. Bring props, your favorite hat or borrow something from us
- Tell us something new
- Use your personality to get your message across
- Humor is always entertaining
- Keep is short sweet and to the point. 3 minutes can be a long time if you’re not entertaining… go ahead, count to 180
