July 31 deadline for student ethics video contest

The ADA Council on Ethics, Bylaws and Judicial Affairs is accepting entries for the 2013 Student Ethics Video Contest. The deadline to submit entries is July 31.

CEBJA has annually sponsored the contest since 2010 to draw student attention to the ethical dilemmas that dental students and professional dentists may encounter and to provide an exercise focusing on appropriate responses based on the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct.

The contest is open to degree-seeking students at, or new graduates of, any ADA-accredited dental school who are 18 or older, U.S. citizens and members in good standing of the American Student Dental Association.

To qualify, videos should be no more than four and a half minutes and must portray the application of one or more principle, code or advisory opinion contained in the ADA Principles of Ethics and Code of Professional Conduct.

The 2013 first place winner will receive $2,000. An honorable mention video will be awarded $1,000. CEBJA will announce the winners at the 2013 ADA Annual Session in New Orleans.

For more information, contest rules and entry forms, contact Earl Sewell at sewelle@ada.org.
