      Who comes to a MEF?
      Anyone interested in postsecondary education and military opportunities is welcome to attend a Minnesota Education Fair. Most high schools in Minnesota will be invited to attend a specific program based on the school's proximity to a MEF site. Prior to each MEF, the Site Coordinator will provide site-specific information to area high schools and participating postsecondary institution.
