2018 Upper Mississippi River Conference Student Summit
The Student Summit provides a unique opportunity for high-school students to engage with a broad range of professionals who work on the front lines of conservation.
2018 Student Delegate Program
Sixteen high school delegates will be chosen by application to attend the UMRC as an extension of the Student Summit. These applications will require a 350-word essay and delegates will be selected by the Student Summit Committee. Student Delegates will attend the presentations on Thursday and Friday at the Upper Mississippi River Conference. These students will get to hear from experts on climate change, geology, meteorology, hydrology, engineering, infrastructure, and conservation.
Essays will be chosen based on knowledge, interest, and creativity.
2018 Student Poster Session
The Student Poster Session is for undergraduate and graduate college students. Students who are in the progress of, or have completed, research on the ecology, planning, recreation, culture, or other similar river-related issues. This session grants these students the opportunity to share their knowledge, get feedback from professionals in their field, and network with river stakeholders.
