Palmyra, WI (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
At the National Chiropractic Legislative Conference (NCLC), held February 26-March 2, 2014 in Washington, D.C., Standard Process Inc. awarded $2,500 scholarships to four Student American Chiropractors Association (SACA) members. In a new twist for the scholarship program, students were asked to submit a video essay opposed to a written essay. Videos were judged based how well applicants articulated their passion for nutrition and how it relates to chiropractic care, as well as their creativity.
Of the videos submitted, eight were selected by Standard Process’ professional development department. The selected entries were then posted to the Standard Process YouTube channel where they were publicly voted on and gathered over 5,000 views resulting in the four winners being named.
Three recipients of the scholarship currently attend New York College of Chiropractic in Seneca Falls, N.Y.: Brittany Elmlinger, third trimester; Nicholas Maio, seventh trimester; and Brendan McCann, fifth trimester. The fourth recipient Anthony N. Memmo is a fifth trimester student attending Logan University in Chesterfield, MO. Maio was a second-time recipient of the scholarship, having been named a recipient at the 2013 NCLC in addition to this year.
This marks the sixth consecutive year the scholarships have been awarded, as the company continues its efforts to contribute to the future of chiropractic. The scholarships were presented by John Nab, D.C., director of professional development of Standard Process, during the conference. “We are committed to the education of chiropractic professionals and the role nutrition plays in it,” said Nab. “Each winner’s video essay allowed us to see how they value nutrition as part of their education in a unique way.”
SACA members in good academic standing and able to attend the 2014 NCLC were eligible to apply for the scholarships. In addition to the video submission, applicants provided a list of their contributions to the chiropractic profession and current GPA.
