This event brings together students from schools in New Mexico to talk about issues important to them. Our event is in its fourth year, and includes students from Albuquerque Academy, Bosque School, and Sandia Preparatory School. Presentations run the gamut between ideas for supporting sustainable agriculture to starting a business, to issues of culture and civil rights in the world. This year, we will have Spanish language presentations and enjoy the insights of high school students in Albuquerque.
