The 2017 Dairy Council Sport Nutrition Award, in collaboration with the British Dietetic Association’s Sport and Exercise Nutrition register (SENr), is open to nutrition and sport students, and SENr registered graduates.
Applicants must compose a formal, evidence-based article on the use of milk or dairy foods in sport nutrition and elite performance. This can be in the format of a dissertation, case study or literature review.
Growing field of study
Lydia Cooper, nutrition scientist at The Dairy Council, said research on milk and dairy and its relationship with exercise and performance nutrition is extensive, and is a growing field of study.
She said the award is intended to inspire the next generation of sport nutritionists and researchers to further investigate dairy products.
Winners may be invited to present their work at the 2018 SENr showcase event. Entries will be accepted until December 31, and the winners will be announced early 2018.
Two prizes will be given for the best entries based on one of the following formats: primary research; case study; and literature review.
The competition is open to graduates who are registered with SENr and nutrition and sport students studying at BSc, MSc or PhD levels.
Those interested should submit applications to firstname.lastname@example.org, clearly marking submissions for the attention of The Dairy Council Award.
