World Food Prize Int. Symposium -431

My name is Micki Zartman and I am a volunteer project coordinator for the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute in Ohio. The project is sponsored by the International Programs through the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the Ohio State University. I have worked with home school organizations through the Waterman Dairy Farm tour program and the Scarlet and Gray Ag Day program at the university. Working with parents who highly value their children's future and who are willing to invest of them selves in providing a quality education grounded in their beliefs has been a very inspiring experience for me. I would like to share information about the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute Program and invite your members to participate. There is no other program for high school students and teachers like the youth institute in Des Moines, Iowa. Could you please give me a phone number and the name of an individual who would be able to help me get this information out to your membership?
We will be selecting our 6 delegates to represent Ohio in September. Students who are interested in participating will write a paper to be submitted by September 11, 2005. All students (and their faculty mentor, a teacher/parent) who write a paper will be invited to attend a food science conference at Ohio State University on September 21. They will engage in a hands-on science lab, attend a agricultural bio-terrorism presentation, attend career presentations in the college of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the International Programs, and attend a cultural and arts reception where the students with the top scores on their paper and interview will be announced as delegates to the World Food Prize International Symposium in Iowa in Oct. For further information about the program, please go to http://cfaes.osu.edu/science/teachers/oncampusexperiences.html and select 'educators letter' for more details and dates about all the events related to the program. To view the topic for the paper the student will write, go to 'Paper Topic', Paper Specifications' and 'Paper Resources'. Also, if you go to www.worldfoodprize.org and go to Youth institute, you will be able to pull up copies of last years’ delegates from Ohio. The deadline dates on the educator's letter will be extended for your parents and students if they are interested in attending. If one of your parents and their child or children is selected, their registration fee of $250.00, the hotel expenses, and most of the meals in Iowa will be funded through the generosity of the Ruan Foundation. Please help me distribute this valuable information to your membership. An additional benefit to the delegates is the opportunity to apply for an all expense paid internship to an international country at a leading research institute. Students strong in science will find this experience life-changing and some of the papers written about their research projects are amazing. They will work with world-renowned scientists in their labs. Norman Borlaug, who is a Nobel laureate credited with saving million of lives with his research on wheat, established the WFP.
I can be reached at mzartman@wideopenwest.com or 1-614-431-3479 or 1-614-309-2184. The fax number is 1-614-292-7116. I look forward to hearing from you. I am available to meet with you or parents and students and I have a wonderful video of the students who have participated in the past.

Sincerely,
Micki Zartman

Across the United States, Classical Conversations Communities exist to complement your home-centered education and connect you with like-minded families. Each community is facilitated by a trained parent-director, and classes are led by trained parent-tutors who model the classical tools of learning. Tutors have the privilege of encouraging students toward becoming lifelong learners while also encouraging parents in the classical teaching of their children.

Our three curriculum programs support your home-centered education by providing teaching tools for you, the parent, and quality educational materials for your student. Our guides, books, timeline cards, and multimedia resources have been thoughtfully crafted and selected. The math, science, literature, Latin, history, geography and fine arts studied in our Foundations Program represent a broad and interesting body of information. Our Essentials Program students work toward mastering English language skills and improving their writing technique. As students move into our Challenge Program and work toward becoming independent learners, they read, discuss, debate, analyze and write about award-winning literature—always within the framework of history and a biblical worldview.

One of the greatest benefits of joining our CC Communities is they provide a place for your students to enjoy other students. Kids love the chance to interact, play, and have some FUN as they are—incidentally—building a scale model of the solar system. Or making beautiful music on the tin whistle. Or learning Socratic logic. And let’s face it: Homeschooling is hard work. Parents need a place to plug in and support one another, too!

Our Foundations Communities serve children in the early stages, roughly ages 4 to 11. Foundations parents and students meet once a week for 24 weeks during the school year. Once late-elementary students enter the dialectic stage of learning, they join peers in our Essentials Communities, which usually meet in the afternoons after Foundations. In the middle and high school years, students hone their dialectic and rhetoric skills in our Challenge Communities.

I would like to have a group of people with whom we can share classical ed experiences, especially Latin!

At some point, I would like to become proficient enough to tutor in Latin!
