Do you care about a better world? Interested in solving global challenges like food security, clean water, and human rights?
Please join us for the 2021 North Carolina Youth Institute, a program that 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, engineering issues, and more. The NCYI is hosted by NC State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and is a part of the Global Youth Institute and the World Food Prize.
This year’s program will be held virtually on Friday, April 23, 2021. To participate, high school-aged youth research a global issue and write a two-three page paper under the supervision of a teacher/mentor. Each teacher/mentor (e.g. can be a parent) must register their student delegate nominee(s), themselves and submit each student’s research paper online by March 16, 2021.
Join us for an informational webinar about the program and ask any questions you might have on March 1 at 3:30 p.m. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
