A Couple of RemindersBy Tim Hodson

One more week.

That’s how much time college students interested in applying for the 2018 GPN/Nexus Intern of the Year have to submit their application materials.

We have extended the original deadline that was originally supposed to be this Wednesday, Oct. 18, until next Monday, Oct. 23.

This is the 19th year that GPN and Nexus Corp. will be honoring that one college student who had an outstanding internship experience in 2017.

To be considered for the 2018 scholarship, the student must currently be enrolled in a four-year accredited U.S. university or college during 2016-2017 and 2017-2018; be working on an undergraduate degree in horticulture/floriculture; and have completed a greenhouse-related internship in 2017.

The top applicant will receive a check for $3,000; be featured in an article and on the cover of the January 2018 issue of GPN; and receive travel and hotel expenses to Cultivate’18 in Columbus, Ohio, next July as well as a complimentary full Cultivate’18 registration.

Another Reminder

I also wanted to remind you that on Oct. 26, GPN (along with our sister publication Vegetable Growers News) will be presenting a webinar on “Understanding the Principles of Controlled Environment Agriculture.” Neil Mattson will present the free, one-hour webinar that will take place at 2 p.m. EDT.

Mattson is associate professor and greenhouse extension specialist at Cornell University and director of Cornell’s Controlled Environment Agriculture group.

You can register to participate in the webinar by clicking here.

Also, if you would like to learn more about controlled environment agriculture, be sure to check out the digital edition of our special supplement, Under Control, that was mailed with your October issue of GPN.
