Feeding, Clothing and Powering a Hungry Nation

It is a little known fact that 93% of the food we eat in Australia is grown by Australian farmers.  So we think you will all agree the future of farming in Australia is very important to all of us.

Expressions of Interest are now open for schools in your community to participate in the  The Archibull Prize . You too can join the movement of teachers and students working together with farmers to ensure everyone in this country has access to safe, affordable, healthy food and quality fibre every day and a brighter future for all.

Agriculture can be used to teach science, geography and maths in context. Did you know it can also be used to teach art and multimedia? In fact the opportunities are endless.

The Archibull Prize is a world renowned program with curriculum-linked teaching resources which explore the role agriculture plays in the health, wealth and happiness of Australians and many other people around the world.

Your students can not only win cash prizes for their creativity, they can put their town on the map by participating in The Archibull Prize!

This year the program has a new theme “Feeding, Clothing and Powering a Hungry Nation is a Shared Responsibility” and we are very excited to share with you we opened up new ways for more schools to participate
