OptometryStudents.com has had an amazing experience over the years attending the International Vision Expo East in New York City, and the International Vision Expo West in Las Vegas. Now Vision Expo is offering a $500 grant for students who want to attend the event this year! All you have to do is submit a 500 word essay on how you can benefit from attending trade shows as an optometry student. The Vision Expo Eastdeadline to enter is Friday, January 24th. Click here for more info.

OS.com has written numerous articles about the benefits of attending trade shows. To get the creative process going for your essay, here’s a sample of what we’ve written in the past about Vision Expo East and West:
