Applications are being accepted for the 2016-17 Excellence Award for Agricultural Students. There are three awards (first place is worth $1,500) for the best responses to this question: Certain segments of the general public question the way food is produced, and have misgivings about the use of new technology. What concrete steps would you, as a future member of the agricultural industry, propose to bridge the information and awareness gap?
Entrants can give their answer in a multimedia presentation, video, Twitter chat, blog or a Wiki.
The award is offered by Farm Management Canada and the Canadian Association of Diploma in Agriculture Programs.
For more info, visit the Farm Management Canada website. The application deadline is May 5.
