Congratulations to Emma Steely who has been selected to participate in the 2018 Global Youth Institute to be held October 17-21, in Des Moines, Iowa. The annual event gives approximately two hundred exceptional high school students from across the United States and other countries an opportunity to interact with Nobel and World Food Prize Laureates and discuss pressing food security and agricultural issues with international experts. At the Global Youth Institute, student delegates present and discuss their findings with international experts and their peers, connect with other students from around the world, tour cutting-edge industrial and research facilities, and take part in symposium discussions with global leaders in science, industry and policy. Emma's accomplishments were recently featured by the Shamokin News-Item in an article that can be accessed by clicking on this link.
