Calling all young advocates for agriculture — American Agri-Women (AAW) and and Bayer Crop Science want to recognize you for your efforts with the Gen Z Speaks Ag advocacy contest.
The Gen Z Speaks Ag contest includes four options: photo, video, special event, or pollinator education. Prizes range from $100 to $500. The entrants can have an agriculture background or have an interest in related topics, such as food safety, food preparation, sustainability, etc. The contest is open to agvocates between 15 and 23 years old and the deadline is Oct. 10.
Gen Z Speaks Ag is part of AAW’s AgDay365: Ag Day is Every Day Campaign. AgDay365 celebrates the fact that everyone is part of agriculture, every day and the contest encourages young advocates to make their voices count.
“As we move closer to 2050, feeding a growing planet to ensure an abundant, sustainable food supply will require the next generation of youth ‘agvocates’ to step up and make their voices heard,” says Jim Blome, president and CEO for North America Crop Science, a division of Bayer. “Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders in ag, and we need their fresh thinking and passionate efforts to solve the challenge of feeding more than 9 billion people. With this award, we hope to recognize those bright young minds looking to make an impact in the industry.”
