Baton Rouge, La. – Students from Southern University have joined other national Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) chapters for the 30th Annual Career Fair and Training Conference in Houston March 26-28. This year’s conference is themed “Thirty Years of Triumph: Branching Out and Excelling to Greater Heights!”
Friday has exciting and dynamic activities lined up, including Health Symposium, Undergraduate and Graduate Research Poster and Oral Contests, Graduate/Professional Workshops, National Written Essay Contest, National Public Speaking Contest, Research Discussion Contest, Agriculture and Science Photography Contest, and Career Fair.
Undergraduate and Graduate Contests provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in presenting their research in poster or oral form before an audience. Posters can be entered as “Competitive” or “Noncompetitive.”
Last year, SU students brought home top prizes and this year, Professor Patricia Meyinsse in Agricultural Economics has eight students under her supervision to present in the oral and poster categories. We are rooting for them to do great again this time around.
