Farm Credit Canada’s project helps high school students see a future in agriculture.
As a founding partner of Ag More Than Ever, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) firmly believes in the value of actively changing perceptions of agriculture. That’s why they partnered with the business class at Regina’s Campbell Collegiate to help high school students see all of the amazing and varied opportunities in the agriculture industry. Business students were tasked with creating a strategy to market agriculture as a career choice to their peers. Their research included field trips and presentations from marketing and ag experts. Students then presented their business case to a panel of ag industry leaders.
The project was very successful – it’s a great example of a partner’s active agvocacy and the great things that can happen when people from throughout the industry come together to help shape people’s relationship with ag. Thanks to FCC, Murad Al-Katib, Greg Stewart, Kim McConnell, South Country Equipment, Richardson Pioneer Ltd., Peter Flaman, Marty Seymour, Katherine Gagne, CJ Katz, Steve Compton, The Government of Saskatchewan’s ThinkAG Program and Campbell Collegiate for their involvement.
