Agriculture diploma program to get big boost with #WinThisTruck contest


If you live in Ontario, you could support future agriculture diploma students and get a chance to win a new 2022 GMC Sierra valued at over $70,000.

The #WinThisTruck lottery is the brainchild of Keith Bean, dealer with Bean Chevrolet Buick GMC at Carleton Place, Ont.

Bean, a key player in making the Algonquin College Business-Agriculture program a reality, says that the proceeds from the truck raffle and a corresponding early bird prize will go towards supporting the Agriculture Experience Week, which happens each term.

The Agriculture Experience Week is a chance for first- and second-year students to spend several days touring not only different farms, but also a variety of agriculture businesses.

The #WinThisTruck raffle proceeds will set up an endowment fund to support costs associated with the week, including transportation, meals, and more.

There will be an early bird draw for $5,000 on June 30, and the grand prize will be drawn for during the Carp Fair weekend in late September.

A maximum of 12,000 tickets are available for purchase at (AGLC License # RAF1249003).
