The LandCare Fair Application has been designed to simulate a grant request. Students should complete each section within the maximum word counts stated.
Each section is required and will be judged by members of the GLC Competition Committee. Scores will determine which projects are selected to present at the LandCare Fair. This score will also be taken into account by the judges in evaluating the different projects at the Competition.
Your topic should be presented as an open-ended question or statement such as “How can we develop a profitable and sustainable local business growing and selling ginseng?” or “Developing a profitable and sustainable ginseng business in Grayson County.” We encourage students to explore relevant literature and other sources (books, articles, websites) to inform their report and also to reach out to experts in their topic area. Some participants may find it helpful to conduct their own investigation, including personal interviews,
in the community or on the farm.
