Wow! This looks so fun! Unfortunately I can't go this year to the Auburn Vet Camp but I'm going to the Phoenix Herpetological Society vet camp this summer. I'm really looking forward to it! I'm definitely going to try to go to Auburn Vet Camp next year though.

this looks so fun! Unfortunately, I am a freshman in high school so I am too old to try. I would have tried when I was younger but I didn't know about this website until recently. I hope the winners have fun!

I am soooo exited! I am almost done with my essay but I doubt I'll win. But it is a good experience just writing this essay. Thank you so much for this opportunity!!

Wow!!! This is such a cool opportunity! I just wish they had something like this for high schoolers. I found out about this app a little late. To all of you middle schoolers, make sure you take advantage of this!
