Midwest Dairy Participates in World Food Prize Iowa Youth Institute

Midwest Dairy recently had the opportunity to engage with global leaders, ag industry experts, scientist, and youth leaders as part of the World Food Prize, Iowa Youth Institute at Iowa State University.

CEO Lucas Lentsch joined Midwest Dairy staff as they enjoyed conversations with top Iowa 8th-12th graders during both a luncheon and round table discussions. To participate, top high school students from across Iowa research and write a paper outlining their recommendations on a topic affecting food security in a developing country about how to better the lives of a typical family in the country. Students presented and discuss their findings with a round-table of peers and industry experts. The top students from this event are invited to participate in the Global Youth Institute held in conjunction with the presentation of the World Food Prize and the Borlaug Dialogue international symposium in October.
