2013 Archibull Prize Schools announced

Art4Agriculture and our supporting partners are thrilled to announce that 44 schools across three states are participating in the Archibull Prize in 2013.

 

This year Art4agriculture has been lucky enough to get significant support from the Australian government to expand the Archibull Prize and offer a primary and secondary school complementary program stream in Natural Resource Management (NRM). This gives us a wonderful opportunity to partner selected primary schools with both our young farming champions and our young eco champions.

The funding provides for a pilot program, with a successful outcome underpinning the chance to roll out the NRM stream nationally.

To integrate the pilot into the program, we have divided the 2013 Archibull Prize into 2 streams ( Program A and Program B)

Program A ( added NRM focus )

Students are asked to consider what it takes to sustainably feed and clothe their community for a day. They will explore a food or fibre industry with the support of both a Young Farming Champion and Young Eco Champion with a stronger focus on NRM.
This will require the students to also consider how farmers work with natural resource management professionals to protect Australia’s scare natural resources and share this as part of their learning.
