An excellent opportunity to get your organization's education materials/information introduced into Great Lakes classrooms!

The Great Lakes Student Summit Steering Committee is currently seeking materials to include for the "Prize Patrol" and in "Welcome Bags" for approximately 250 - 300 participating students and teachers.  

Any contribution is welcome, BIG or small.  Whether it be 300 stickers to include in the "Welcome Bags" or a poster to give away for the "Prize Patrol".  Organizations that have already generously contributed materials to this worthwhile educational event include the USEPA GLNPO, IJC, Ohio Sea Grant, Wisconsin Sea Grant and New York Sea Grant.  All contributing organizations will be acknowledged in print.

The fourth biennial Great Lakes Student Summit - "Great Lakes, Great Rivers: Lessons from the past, lessons for the future..."  http://www.greatlakesed.org/2001summit.htm will be taking place May 9-11, 2001 in Buffalo, NY.

Western New York will once again welcome hundreds of students and their teachers from states and provinces around the Great Lakes basin to the fourth biennial Great Lakes Student Summit. Students in grades 5-9 will  come together to showcase their own research projects, participate in field trips to Niagara Falls and Lake Erie, and attend workshops relating to Great Lakes issues.

Already confirmed to attend the Summit are groups from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York and Ontario.  A contingency from the IJC will also be in attendance.  Registration is ongoing.
