Minnesota Youth Institute offers students grades 8-12 opportunity to address world hunger

The Minnesota Youth Institute, hosted by the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) provides all students in grades 8 through 12 a chance to tackle one of today’s biggest challenges - world hunger. Students write a research paper, then share their thoughts and perspectives about solutions to food security issues with experts at the University of Minnesota. Those who participate have the possibility of advancing to the Global Youth Institute in Iowa, part of the World Food Prize symposium in October, and earning a $1,000 scholarship to CFANS. Join this opportunity to invent, inspire and implement ideas! Register and submit your essay by April 20, 2016. To learn more about this amazing program, please visit mnyi.cfans.umn.edu.
