CARROLL COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Century Students to Represent Maryland at Global Youth Institute


Carroll County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Aug. 8.

Two Century High School students, Briana Muchella-Prata and Marie Walters, have been selected to represent Maryland as delegates to the 2019 Global Youth Institute in Des Moines, Iowa, from October 16 – 19, 2019.

Every year, the World Food Prize Youth Regional Institutes convene high school students, teachers, and experts to explore and solve local, national and global hunger and food security issues. To apply to the Institute, students research and write a paper on a global challenge related to hunger and food insecurity. Briana focused her research on poverty, food insecurity and education in Argentina. Marie’s research dealt with Kenya’s need to increase agricultural production in the face of deforestation, soil degradation and climate change.

Each year, 200 exceptional high school students from around the world are selected to participate in the three-day Global Youth Institute hosted by the World Food Prize Foundation. At the event, students will interact with Nobel and World Food Prize Laureates, heads of state, ministers of agriculture, researchers, business executives, and humanitarian leaders from more than 65 countries and discuss pressing food security and agricultural issues with international experts.

Student delegates present their research and discuss their findings with international experts and their peers, connect with other students from around the world, tour cutting-edge industrial and research facilities, and take part in symposium discussions with global leaders in science, industry, and policy.
