NALPThe National Association of Landscape Contractors (NALP) announced March 11 its decision to cancel the 2020 National Collegiate Landscape Competition (NCLC) due to travel and health issues surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). The situation on the Michigan State University campus changed rapidly just one week before the event, and for the safety of students, faculty and industry members, the event was canceled. But organizers recognized the disappointment for many and quickly organized a virtual career fair April 7 and 8 where students and employers connected.
The virtual event featured:
  • 40 booths
  • 12 workshops
  • 154 students
  • 33 faculty participants
  • 38 schools
  • 100 career fair reps, workshop presenters and sponsor reps

For 43 years, NCLC (formerly Student Career Days) has been a critical nexus for landscape and horticulture students, launching careers and building life-long relationships. NALP looks forward to welcoming participants in person at the 2021 National Collegiate Landscape Competition, which will take place at Virginia Tech March 10-13.
