New York Youth Institute June 29-30, 2018
Our partnership with FFA and the World Food Prize NY Youth Institute is yielding positive results. Derek Sherrange from Argyle was selected as a student delegate to the World Food Prize. Bella Culotta from Ithaca, Isabella Smith from Spencer and Sol de Leon from NYC area received paid summer internships in Nepal, Iowa and at the Robert Holley Research Station at Cornell through their New York Youth Institute participation. All were FFA members. See the CALS News article about the NY Youth Institute here. https://cals.cornell.edu/news/new-york-youth-shine-world-food-prize.
