Governor Jack Dalrymple appointed Glenda Fauske from the Coalition for Conservation and Environmental Education (C2E2) to serve as North Dakota's selection coordinator for the 2013 National Youth Science Camp (NYSC). Two high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds. The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation; overnight camping trips into the Monogahela National Forest; and a visit to Washington D.C. The selected delegates must not only demonstrate academic achievement in science, but also show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.
The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants, so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation allow delegates to participate in this "once in a lifetime" experience. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge.
Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Thursday, June 26, and depart on Sunday, July 20, 2013. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. Application forms are available on the NYSC website at www.nysc.org and must be submitted directly to North Dakota's selection coordinator at the following address. Applications must be received or postmarked by Friday, February 15, 2013. They can be emailed to Glenda.Fauske@ndsu.edu or sent to NYSC C2E2 Application, % Glenda Fauske, North Dakota State University-NDFS, 307 - 1st Street East, Bottineau ND 58318-1100.
