Tired of shrinking budgets limiting your professional development and that of your students? The Irrigation Foundation is proud to present an opportunity where you won't need a school grant to attend...
Your student - and YOU - could be awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2011 Irrigation Show with a winning essay or video.
For the eighth consecutive year, the Irrigation Foundation is sponsoring an essay/video contest for college and technical school students interested in the green industry.
Encourage your students to craft a 1,500-1,800 word essay or a three- to five-minute video on this topic: How will irrigation careers be affected by limited water supplies in the future. Winners receive a trip valued at over $2,500 and an invaluable opportunity.
If your student is selected as a winner, you'll both receive a free trip to the show, Nov. 6-8 in San Diego. The Foundation will cover the costs of airfare, airport transfers, housing, educational classes, exposition registration and even a meals stipend.
The Irrigation Show is a unique event where you and your student will:
- Network with industry leaders
- Gain access to information and technologies not available in your local community.
- Discuss the field with industry professionals.
- Compare educational experiences with other instructors.
- Earn bragging rights for your educational institution.
