The 2017 World Food Prize Wisconsin Youth Institute will be hosted at CALS on Monday, April 10. This event features an in-depth look at how UW-Madison faculty and students are addressing food security through the natural and social sciences. High school student attendees will participate in hands-on learning sessions and small group conversations with university faculty.
This unique experience is open to all Wisconsin high school students in grades 9-12. To be eligible to participate, students complete a research paper about a global issue concerning hunger and poverty.
Volunteers are needed for the event, and CALS faculty and staff are encouraged help if they can. Fac/staff can participate as judges or observers during paper presentation sessions (9:45 – 11:15 a.m.) or can offer immersion sessions (1 – 1:35 p.m. and 1:45 – 2:20 p.m.) as hands-on learning experiences for students. Questions about participation during the event can be directed to Fatima Sartbay, Wisconsin Youth Coordinator, at 608-262-5648 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
