Brian Okundaye was selected as one of the top students in the country to attend the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute in Des Moines, IA last month. The Institute attracted 1,300 people from 65 different countries to discuss world hunger and food security issues.
In order to be considered for participation, students from across the United States and abroad, researched global food security issues in the country of their choice and submitted papers on those critical topics which were also presented to renowned experts and scientists. At the three-day Institute, Okundaye and 150 other high school students had the opportunity to interact with a diverse group of internationally renowned World Food Prize Laureates and leaders in food, agriculture and international development.
