The Camden Conference is pleased to announce the awarding of the Bill Taylor Awards to three high school and three college students for their essays written related to this year’s Conference topic Refugees and Global Migration: Humanity’s Crisis. Bill Taylor, a long-time supporter of the Conference, created this award in 2014 to promote student research in support of his strong interest in education.
Education programs of the Camden Conference are designed to promote knowledge, perspectives, and dialogue opportunities on world affairs with high school and college educators and their students. Maine high schools and colleges offer academic courses based on the annual Conference topic
