Student Summits 2016
Approximately 200 students from area high schools and middle schools participated in a student summit, "Conversation Toward a Brighter Future" on Tuesday, Feb. 23, and Thursday, Feb. 25, at the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities in Edwardsville, Illinois. The summit begins a discussions around the MJCHF's four pillars - Respect, Dignity, Understanding and Forgiveness. Students will have the opportunity to earn up to $5,000 for their school to fund their two-year research project. Students must submit a project proposal, statement of issue describing a problem, and solutions regarding how their school or community will benefit from their findings. If the project proposal is approved, students will be awarded a fellowship grant for the implementation of their school research project. Students will then present an assessment and best practices in May 2017 and those selected will receive a grant of $1,000 for year two. Photo by S.
