Essilor Optometry Student Bowl™ XXVI and Reception



College rivalries take center stage as 24 schools and colleges of optometry battle to be the smartest, loudest, and most creative in the 26th Annual Essilor Optometry Student Bowl™. The high-speed, high-stakes test of optometric knowledge pits one champion from each school against all others, poised to buzz in with the right answer and bring home $1,000 and the coveted crystal trophy. Second- and third-place winners take home $750 and $500 respectively. The equally celebrated Spirit Award honors the school with the most energy, best costumes, and flashiest entrance−students ramp up for the must-attend event by putting together costumes, props and signs to cheer on their champion.  

Everyone is invited−students, ODs, guests, and optometric staff. Attend the reception that immediately follows with great food, drinks, and warm camaraderie.  

Students and students' guests will be automatically registered for this event. All others may attend the Student Bowl™ without registering but must register to receive a free drink ticket for the reception.
