The Curious Young Writers blog provides a platform for publishing student writing that describes a nontraditional animal model and its role in advancing understanding of a specific disease, disorder, or medical condition. Each juried entry is authored by a pre-collegiate student who researches and writes about uncommon animals that are helping researchers find better answers to some age-old health questions.

What a great opportunity for students to learn about animal models and reasearch! Maybe it could be incorporated as a class project after using this Science and Ethics of Animal Research Curriculum from the Archive - http://www.apsarchive.org/resource.cfm?submissionID=6418
Great idea! We could have an Archive contest each year. Something to bring up with Education Committee perhaps? I'll see if Mike Wyss will join the conversation.
