- Ohio Youth Institute Dr. Norman Borlaug created this youth program of the World Food Prize, in which high school students research and write a paper outlining solutions to help address global food issues. Participants from around the state come to OSU in the spring to meet with faculty experts from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. They share ideas, listen to speakers, and participate in hands-on activities. Top students from the Ohio event are selected to attend the national-level Global Youth Institute (GYI) in the fall, which is held in Des Moines, Iowa. GYI participants are eligible to apply for international internships. The 2023 registration deadline is March 20 and the Ohio Youth Institute is set for April 17.
