1. World Food Prize – Global Youth Institute – Illinois Delegates

Up to two student delegates will be selected to represent Illinois at the Global Youth Institute held in Des Moines, Iowa, October 19-21, 2017.

There, they will join over 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 75 countries attending the World Food Prize’s annual international symposium.

At the Global Youth Institute, participating high school students have the opportunity to:

  • Present research and recommendations on how to solve key global challenges in a short speech and small group discussions with international experts
  • Connect with other student leaders from across the United States and other countries to share ideas, identify solutions to these problems and build lasting friendships
  • Tour cutting-edge industrial and research facilities addressing food and water security, nutrition, global agriculture and health
  • Interact with global leaders in science, industry and policy at the Borlaug Dialogue international symposium
  • Meet the World Food Prize Laureates at the magnificent Norman E. Borlaug Hall of Laureates before they receive the “Nobel Prize for Food and Agriculture” for greatly advancing human development by improving the quality, quantity or availability of food in the world

To participate, students research a global issue and write a five-page paper under the supervision of a teacher mentor (using the downloadable guidelines above). Each high school must register their student delegate nominee(s) and submit each student's research paper online by August 1, 2017. Ninth through Twelfth grade students are eligible to apply.
