World Food Prize Global Youth Institute      
Each year, more than 100 exceptional high school students from across the United States and other countries are selected to participate in the three-day Global Youth Institute hosted by the World Food Prize Foundation.

Selected students and their teacher mentors travel to Des Moines, Iowa, in mid-October to attend this exciting three-day event at which they 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.

How to Participate      
  Students research a global issue and write a five-page paper under the supervision of a teacher mentor (using the downloadable guidelines in "documents" section below). Each student will present their findings at the Arkansas Youth Institute in April the week of State Judging Contests in Fayetteville. The top students will then be selected to attend the Global Youth Institute in Des Moines, Iowa.

For more information on how to participate in the Global Youth Institute, contact Arkansas FFA state staff.
