CALS to Hold Student Symposium for Solving World Hunger
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/08/2019
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will be holding its fifth annual World Food Prize Wisconsin Youth Institute at the UW-Madison campus this spring. The day-long program, which is slated for April
8, gives Wisconsin high school students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to engage directly with leading researchers and industry experts specializing in food systems and natural resources on the topic of world hunger and poverty. At the Institute,
participants will also present a research report on a global food security issue.
In order to participate, interested students must write a two- to three-page paper on a topic connected to food security in a country other than the United States.
The top students at the Wisconsin Youth Institute will be invited to attend the three-day World Food Prize Global Youth Institute held in conjunction with the World Food Prize International Symposium in Iowa in October.
