The National Association of Landscape Professionals' (NALP's) annual collegiate career event and competition, the National Collegiate Landscape Competition, will take place March 14 through 17 at Alamance Community College in North Carolina.
More than 750 horticulture and landscape students from over 60 schools will test their skills in 30 real-world, competitive events. Competitors will interview with landscape, lawn care, tree care, irrigation and other companies at the Career Fair held on Thursday, March 15.
“This event each year is the best opportunity to support and connect with the next generation,” said Sabeena Hickman, CAE, NALP CEO. “The fact that we have participation from top industry companies and suppliers is a testament to the talent of these students and to the competitive workforce environment we find ourselves in.”
