Are you (or do you know) a University or College student looking for the opportunity to enter a cash prize contest that will allow the participant to share their ideas? Send a video submission to the Excellence Award for Agricultural Students for your chance to earn $1000!

The Canadian Farm Business Management Council wants to help agricultural students develop their communication skills by providing them an opportunity to give an oral presentation on a subject related to farm management. The oral presentations will be submitted in form of a video blog sent in by email or regular mail. The email can contain the video itself or a link to the video on a site, such as YouTube.

Videos should include your name, year and field of study, program, and school attending. Your video should be 3-5 minutes in length and answer the question "How do changing consumer trends affect farm management responsibilities and styles?" The content should keep the attention of the audience while being informative and innovative.

The five winning videos will receive a $1,000 cash prize and will be posted on our Web site.

Please pass along this information to any University or College agricultural students you may know.
