Registration is now open for companies to attend PLANET Student Career Days—The National Collegiate Landscape Competition taking place March 20–23, 2014, at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, CO.

Student Career Days brings together approximately 850 horticulture and landscape students from more than 65 schools to test their skills in real-world, competitive events, and to interview with landscape, lawncare, irrigation, and other companies at the Career Fair, which will be held on Friday, March 21, 2014.
