by scientists from across the nation, overnight expeditions into the
Monongahela National Forest and a visit to the nation’s capital. The
selected delegates must demonstrate academic achievement in science and show
potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.

delegates may attend regardless of their financial status. Educational and
recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip airfare are
