Announcing the Annual ToXchange Profile Picture Contest


By Mary Beth Genter-Mills posted 11-30-2017 13:06


This week, we announced the annual ToXchange profile picture contest! This profile picture contest benefits all of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) Component Groups: Regional Chapters, Specialty Sections, and Special Interest Groups. Component groups with the highest percentage of member profile pictures posted by January 1, 2018, will receive an award stipend of $500 as travel support funds to the SOT Annual Meeting—to be dispersed at the discretion of the component group. If you don’t have a profile picture on your ToXchange profile, consider uploading one today!

As component groups vary in the number of members, there are three levels in the competition:

A) Component Groups with up to 150 members.
B) Component Groups with 151–300 members.
C) Component Groups with more than 300 members.

In addition to the award stipend for travel support to the SOT 57th Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, the winning component groups will be recognized in the Communiqué blog.

Even if you aren’t a member of a component group, upload your profile picture today – it’s an extra way to be recognized and engage with other members. And, if you haven’t already done so, please renew your 2018 SOT and component group membership!
