Missouri's youth are our future. Their opportunities and challenges will shape our communities, our state, and the world for decades to come. It's up to today's leaders and educators to create the conditions needed for today's youth to thrive. The UM System Office of Engagement and Missouri AfterSchool Network are excited to announce the creation of a collaborative research pitch competition with $25,000 in prizes available to support the creation or expansion of research projects focused on youth development and well-being.
Research teams interested in participating must submit a short application by 9/25/23.
