As one of the more important activities, each delegate to the Forum competes in a paper presentation competition with the content covering a range-related topic. The title of Cole's paper is "Range Management to Promote Perennial Vegetation Growth for Healthy Rangelands." All presentations will be judged by a diverse panel of judges, with the top five papers being recognized at the SRM awards ceremony. The top paper winner is invited to return to next year's meeting to help with the Forum and present their paper to the general membership of the Society. In addition, other activities will include a local ecological field tour of the meeting site and a program to enhance communication skills. Since the number of delegates that can attend each year is limited, selection for this activi is considered a ;lih honor for those students selected. Because of this perspective, the planners of this year's Forum are excited about the program and activities that have been scheduled and hope to provide both an exciting and rewarding educational experience for all that attend.
