CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Around 50 high school students from across the Show Me State shared their research and recommendations to battle world hunger.

It happened at the annual Missouri Youth Institute at the University of Missouri.

The March 4th event connects students interested in agriculture with University of Missouri faculty who are experts in agriculture and international development.

Students submitted a paper on a global hunger or poverty issue in a developing country to attend.

Heartland students attending the Missouri Youth Institute at the University of Missouri this spring included:

  • Katherine Hallman, Cape Girardeau
  • Trent Deppe and Elizabeth Plunkett, Perryville

Top students will be selected to represent Missouri at the Global Youth Institute in October in Des Moines, Iowa.
