During the awards ceremony dinner, students will receive the opportunity to listen to keynote speakers about rangeland career opportunities from professionals from natural resource management agencies and organizations or business operations involving rangelands such as ranching.
The goal of this contest is to raise awareness about rangelands and introduce career opportunities to high school students. Connecting youth with rangeland professionals is a solid pathway to attracting students to career opportunities on the range and one approach to increasing the number of rangeland professionals ready to enter the workforce. Participants can also apply the knowledge they have gained to the areas in which they live, work, and recreate.
