The Ministry of Agriculture is sending two Saskatchewan students and their teachers, all expenses paid, to represent the province at the Global Youth Institute from October 13 to 15, 2016 in Des Moines, Iowa!
Selected students will interact with Nobel and World Food Prize Laureates and discuss pressing food security and agricultural issues with international experts. Students from around the world will connect, tour cutting-edge industrial and research facilities, and take part in symposium discussions with global leaders in science, industry and policy. Saskatchewan students currently in grade 8 to 11, with a keen interest in agriculture and food security, are eligible to apply. Application deadline is May 20, 2016.
Saskatchewan’s agriculture and agri-food industry is full of opportunities, and it is our responsibility to ensure our youth are provided with these valuable experiences. Please forward this information to your networks and encourage eligible students to apply! The application package is attached HERE.
