NEWSS Weed Science Contest
Collegiate Weed Science Contest
The purpose of the Northeastern Collegiate Weed Science Contest is to provide an educational experience from which students in Northeastern universities can broaden their applied skills in weed science. The contest provides an opportunity for weed science students to meet and talk with each other, be exposed to researchers from other universities and industry, and apply what they have learned. It is also hoped that the contest will increase the visibility of weed science and intensify the interest level of those participating in the discipline of weed science.
2016 Collegiate Weed Science Contest
The 2016 NEWSS Weed Contest will be held July 25-26 at Kentland Farm in Blacksburg, VA, and hosted by Virginia Tech. Monday July 25 will be a travel day with a welcome dinner that evening, and the contest will be held all day Tuesday July 26 at the research farm near the main campus. To register a team, return registration form to Jacob Barney firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1. We need this much time to make arrangements for the number of teams and students. A hotel block has been reserved at Hampton Inn Christiansburg/Blacksburg. Please reserve rooms by June 15 to ensure we meet our room block and you get the discounted rate of $95 per night (mention group code PLA).
