1 United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service International Programs 1 Thomas Circle, NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC CALL FOR APPLICATIONS 13 th Annual International Junior Foresters Competition Sponsored by the Russian Federal Forest Agency September 49, 2016, Peterhof (outside of St. Petersburg), Russia Deadline for Applications: July 8, 2016 Background: The US Forest Service (USFS) and the Russian Federal Forestry Agency (RFFA) have been collaborating for over 50 years on research, technical cooperation, and policy issues. Like the U.S., Russia contains temperate and boreal forests. The forests share similar species, similar forest health problems, and some common threats. In addition, both countries benefit from exchanging lessons learned through their extensive experiences in forest research and management. The current focus of collaboration between the two agencies focuses on mutually important themes such as: forest inventory and monitoring, wildfire management, illegal logging, climate change, and others. The Junior Foresters Competition is an annual event hosted by RFFA, which brings together youth from nations around the world to promote and reward young scientists for their interest and efforts in the environmental field and to encourage international dialogue concerning forestry issues. The overall goals of the competition are: to encourage cooperation among young people of different countries; to develop students environmental awareness; to share students knowledge and practical experience in forest management and environmental science; to attract students attention to global forest issues; and to encourage student initiatives which will broaden their knowledge and promote skills development in forest ecology, silviculture and forest protection, forest treatment and regeneration, and training, education and vocational guidance in the fields of forestry and environmental management. Competition Details: This year s competition will take place in earlyseptember. Participants will spend 1 day in St. Petersburg for sightseeing and collaborative activities with other students from around the world. They will then travel to the nearby town of Peterhof, a picturesque area that was once the location of the tsars summer palace and will be the location of this year s competition. Detailed information about the competition requirements and an application form are attached. Caring for the Land and Serving People Printed on Recycled Paper
