Summer Opportunity

Horticultural Science Summer Institute
July 8-13th, 2012

Through North Carolina State University and North Carolina Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Program with the Department of Horticultural Science.

High school-aged youth (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors) are invited to apply to a new 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 tools that enhance our understanding of plant production processes. Participants will visit a variety of horticultural businesses.  Youth will also be introduced to career possibilities, college-making decisions and leadership development.

The cost of the institute will be $500 with a $150 deposit due upon application acceptance. Scholarships may be available.
