Horticultural Science Summer Institute, July 6-11, 2014

High school-aged youth (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) are invited to apply to a weeklong, residential horticultural experience on the campus of NC State University. Youth will have hands-on opportunities to explore a broad range of horticultural possibilities from breeding better fruits and vegetables, growing a diverse selection of woody ornamentals, lengthening the life of cut flowers, learning sustainable production practices and delving into practical tools that enhance our understanding of plant processes. Participants will visit a variety of horticultural businesses. Youth will also be introduced to career possibilities, college-making decisions and leadership development and enjoy evening entertainment and team-building activities.

Liz Driscoll is please to announce a limited number of scholarships for 4-H youth to attend! Youth should apply here by Friday, April 4th. For more information visit the Hort Science Summer Institute webpage.
