2018 Seal of Approval Recipients
World Food Prize Iowa Youth Institute
The Iowa Youth Institute encourages all Iowa high school students to pursue hunger-fighting career paths in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Their approach focuses on inquiry-based learning and allows students to present their own evidence-based ideas to faculty and industry experts at an annual event on Iowa State University's campus. Students also participate in on-campus immersions that allow them to explore 21st-century careers including genetics, dietetics, agronomy, environmental science, nutrition and agricultural technology.
