Know an Ag Diploma Student? $1,500 Scholarship Up for Grabs

Farm Management Canada (FMC) and the Canadian Association of Diploma in Agriculture Programs (CADAP) have launched the 2015-16 Excellence Award for Agricultural Students, designed to encourage students to improve their critical thinking, communication and leadership skills through a national competition.

FMC and CADAP are collecting submissions from agricultural students across Canada and will award three winners with scholarships towards furthering their education in agriculture. First place is a scholarship valued at $1,500.

The award is designed to help students develop their communication skills by having the opportunity to voice their opinion on a subject related to farm management.

Students may submit a multimedia presentation, a video, a Twitter chat, a blog post or a Wiki, responding to the following question:

What top 3 priorities should Canada’s agricultural industry focus on in order to be a leading agricultural body going forward? How will you, as a new graduate, positively contribute to these priorities?

All applications must be received by May 6, 2016.

To take part in the competition, visit the FMC Website: www.fmc-gac.com
