More than 80% of careers in agriculture are people who support farmers  

This year the 2017 Grand Champion Archibull Prize announcement partnered with National Agriculture Day. We celebrated #AgDay by celebrating the innovative teachers and students who, each year to showcase all the people who come together to put food on our plates, clothes on our backs and in some cases power our lives.

The agriculture sector is so much more than farmers and The Archibull Prize is the perfect opportunity to share with young people looking for a career that makes a difference that more than 80% of careers in agriculture are people who support farmers.

Just what would Australian agriculture look like in 20 years-time if all the bright young minds who have been introduced to agriculture through The Archibull Prize, choose to make agriculture part of their future. Here at Picture You in Agriculture we are pretty pumped by that thought

Everyone in the room walked away reinvigorated by the energy of our special guest Costa Georgiadis. Costa reached out and spoke to every child in the room. He touched each and everyone of us with his love for the planet, his respect for all the people who come together to ensure we are clothed and fed and his support for youth – the voices of the future

The future belongs to the curious

The world needs creative, innovative and courageous young people who can connect, collaborate and act. We know that youth may only be 20% of the population but they are 100% of the future. The time is now to let them share their dreams and design the future they want to see.
