Next Gen tell Agricultures story in words and insights

The Archibull Prize 2012 entries are now in and for the last two weeks art judge Wendy Taylor and I have been touring the state to allow Wendy to see the art works up close and personal and meet the teachers and students who have put their heart and souls into their Archies over the past 12 weeks. Yes aren’t they superstars they pulled this off in just 12 weeks.!!!!

We still have three schools’ artwork to feature and will do so shortly as soon as Wendy gets a chance to get some down time and reacquaint herself with her gorgeous family

In the meantime just to show the Archibull Prize is no fluffy art competition our superstar students have produced some outstanding blogs in their efforts to win the 2012 Archibull Prize. These are now loaded on the web and currently being judged by our expert judges

The brief was to create a Weekly Journal with a minimum of 1 journal entry per week and include

  • 5 mandatory blog posts
  • Digital photographs recording significant events
    • such as the arrival of Archie and visit by Young Farming
      Champion with supporting text.
    • Digital photographs and or video footage showing students working in teams, with supporting text.
    • A profile of the importance of the food or fibre industry your students are studying.
    • Digital photographs and or video footage portraying the development of the big ideas through the drafting stages of the final creation of the Archibull, with supporting text.
    • Funny photos including the Archibull ‘posing’ in an exotic location at the school.
    • A collection of small paragraphs to support photographs included in the Journal.

Have a look their work its outstanding. Write some comments on their blogs.  See if you can pick a winner. Not easy is it?. Judges we feel your pain
