Essay Background Information:
The theme for the 2020 Show-Me SWCS Scholarship is “Natural Resources Management and Conservation in a 5-G World”. The theme for each year is based on the year’s theme for the Missouri Natural Resources Conference.
A 5G network is the new standard to virtually connect everyone and everything. It offers better speed, more responsiveness and the possibility of more connections. That technology is reshaping the supply and demand for natural resources, new technologies that support natural resource management, and driving progress forward. Technological advances have helped shape the way that we tackle the mission to protect and enhance our state’s abundant natural resources.
Through your essay, we want you to explore the ways that natural resource conservation is changing, due specifically to technological advances, and how that affects our ability to gather information, connect generations of people and research, generate ideas, communicate with the global scientists and natural resource connoisseurs, and the gateways opened by new technology. Pick one of the ideas, 1) gathering, 2) generations, 3) global, 4) gateway, and 5) generating, and explain how you feel that phrase relates to natural resources and technology.
Scholarship applications must include a 3 to 5-page essay (please include sources).
