NC Youth Institute
The Department of Crop and Soil Sciences is delighted to invite high school youth to participate in the North Carolina Youth Institute. This program is part of the Global Youth Institute and World Food Prize and provides a platform for students to research and give recommendations to solve key global challenges that range from food insecurity, access to potable water, poverty, human rights and more.
To participate, students research a global issue and write a two-three page paper under the supervision of a teacher/mentor (using these downloadable guidelines). Each teacher/mentor must register their student delegate nominee(s) and submit each student’s research paper online in late winter each year. 9-12th grade students in the current school year are eligible to apply.
In the spring of each year, students attend the day and a half institute at NC State University and share their research paper among peers and a panel of judges. Hands-on workshops, field trips, keynotes and career development will round out the event. There is no registration cost to participate in the Institute and lodging and meals will be provided. However, both student and teacher/mentor participants must organize their own transportation to and from the event in Raleigh, NC.
The Global Youth Institute: the top students at the North Carolina Youth Institute will be competitively selected to represent the State of North Carolina as delegates at the Global Youth Institute, held in Des Moines, Iowa in October of each year. There, they will join 400 other outstanding high school students and teachers from across the United States and around the world for an exciting three-day program to interact with Nobel and World Food Prize Laureates and the more than 1,000 global leaders from 65 countries attending the World Food Prize’s annual international symposium.
The North Carolina Youth Institute is hosted by North Carolina State University with the generous support of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, and North Carolina 4-H. For more information on how to participate in the North Carolina Youth Institute, contact the North Carolina State Coordinator Dr. Lori Unruh Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (919) 515-4070.
