How can students/teachers participate?

If you know of a bright student ready to change the world, please encourage them to participate: To participate, students write an essay in which they have researched a key global issue concerning food security. At the event, each student will give a short (3-5 min) presentation to Purdue experts and the other participating students. The picture below is a picture of the Roundtable discussion.
