Applications are now available for youth participation in the Kellogg

The Food Project (TFP) is partnering once again with the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation to create a significant and meaningful youth presence at this
year's 2004 Food and Society (FAS) Conference from April 19th ­ 22rd, 2004
in Squaw Valley, California.  This collaboration is part of TFP¹s BLAST
(Building Local Agricultural Systems Today) Initiative.   BLAST¹s mission is
to develop a network of young leaders who will build and advocate for
sustainable, community-based food systems around the country and around the
world. 

You are invited to nominate a youth/young adult team to participate in the
conference.  If selected, your team would join others from around the
country for a Pre-Conference Training & Networking Day on April 19th and for
special workshops during the proceedings that will help youth and young
adults get the most out of the conference.  The Pre-Conference activities
will include communications and leadership training, sharing of models and
practices, tours of local projects, and team-building. All lodging, meal and
local transportation costs will be covered in full. Airfare or other travel
costs may be subsidized by scholarships.
