Young Albertans have a chance to win $1,000 and a trip to the Canadian Young Speakers for Agriculture competition in Toronto.

Alberta Young Speakers for Agriculture will hold its second annual public speaking competition on July 12 during the Calgary Stampede. The event offers young people an opportunity to share their views in a speech on a topic important to Albertan and Canadian agriculture.

“We invite youth ages 11-24 to sign up and share their passion for the agricultural industry by speaking and sharing their views on Canadian agriculture,” said Eric Dalke, AYSA founder.

Speeches should be five to seven minutes long and address one of these topics:

  • Working in agriculture is more than just farming.
  • Does digital farming have a place in the future of Canadian agriculture?
  • Farm gate to dinner plate: The importance of food traceability for Canadian consumers.
  • How will we feed nine billion people by 2050?
  • Food waste: What is the global impact and who is responsible for making a change?
