Late last month, the 2017 World Press Institute's fellows toured Highwater Ethanol in Lamberton.

The tour, which was held on Aug 29, was part of the fellowship's two month program which included stops in Minnesota, Washington D.C., New York, Florida, Texas, Colorado, California and Illinois.

In Minnesota, they toured Minnesota's agriculture industry, shadowed reporters and producers in the Twin Cities and a visit up north to Ely.

The 2017 World Press fellows came from 10 vastly different countries that together encompass nearly a fourth of the world’s population. They approach journalism with a deep sense of dedication and responsibility and were eager to learn about journalism and life in the world’s most powerful democracy.

The fellows who toured Highwater Ethanol were Eltaf Najafizada (Bloomberg News) from Afghanistan, Gabriel Baldocchi (Istoe Dinheiro) from Brazil, Dalina Goranova (Capital Weekly & Capital Daily) from Bulgaria, Vanessa Barford (BBC News) from the United Kingdom, Elina Hiltunen (Finnish Broadcasting Company) from Finland, Britta von der Heide (Norddeutschen Rundfunk TV) from Germany, Louisa  Reynolds (Newsweek, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Christian Science Monitor, Proceso) from Guatemala, Mark Oloo Zablon (The Standard) from Kenya, Maxiei Czarnecki (Gazeta Wyborcza) from Poland and Ekaterina Ivashenko (Ferghana.Ru) from Russia.
