Annually, ASCO hosts a contest for a student created video promoting Optometry as a profession. Optometry interns from all ASCO-member institutions are eligible to submit original videos to compete for three cash awards. The videos are then hosted on YouTube and used as a promotional tool to market the value of becoming a Doctor of Optometry.
