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

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.

How to Apply

Students were asked to submit a multimedia presentation, a video, a Twitter chat, a blog or a Wiki, ​responding to the following question:
