Do you like a challenge? Would you like to share your enthusiasm for agriculture?
Does the opportunity to win a substantial cash prize appeal to you? Are you 11 to 24 years old?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Canadian Young Speakers for Agriculture competition is for you! The Canadian Young Speakers for Agriculture competition is held annually in November at the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair in Toronto, as part of Youth Weekend.
It’s an opportunity to develop your public speaking skills and a forum to express community concerns. The competition originated in 1985 in honour of International Youth Year, and was originally sponsored by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food. Farm Credit Canada joined as a co-sponsor in 1987.
There are cash prizes for the six finalists in both the Junior Competition (ages 11-15) and Senior Competition (ages 16-24). The Senior Champion will receive $1000, while the Junior Champion is awarded $500.
