The Archibull Prize provides students with a life size fibreglass cow on which the students create an artwork using the theme “Feeding, clothing and powering a hungry nation is a shared responsibility. The program design also invites the students to be part of the solution by sharing their ideas on how to tackle these challenges as individuals, as a community and as the mums and dads of the next generation.
The program also matches Young Farming Champions (YFC), enthusiastic young people working within agriculture to each school. The YFC support the students and excite them about career prospects in the sector. – climate change, food and fashion waste, declining natural resources and biosecurity.
As part of the competition students also write a blog and create animations and infographics that show their knowledge of the issues facing agriculture and their call to action
The winners will be announced at The Archibull Prize Awards and Exhibition Day on November 21st 2017 coinciding with National Agriculture Day
