What a 48 hours the Archibull Prize has had
It started with an overwhelming response from primary schools to the call out for Expressions of Interest for the 2014 Archibull Prize in the Junior Landcare Newsletter
I am beginning to think school teachers work dairy farmers hours The emails started at 4 in the morning and continued till 11pm last night and started again at 5.30am this morning. How exciting to see schools so eager to be involved
Then this – does it get any better than this – The Archibull Prize has won the Event of the Year at Trangie Australia Day Awards!!
“The success of the project has been an enormous promotion of Trangie across the whole of Australia. It has absolutely put Trangie on the map!”
Excerpt from the Narromine News
But wait there is more the Junior Citizen of the Year was Pat Skinner
Pat is a dedicated and enthusiastic participant in a wide range of activities. He is a fantastic team player and contributes 110 per cent in everything
with unfailing humour – Archibull Prize video, dancing schools
spectacular, movie nights,
school band, discos for out of home care kids, and
is now a keen sailor.
Over the last 10 years Art4Agriculture has put me in the spotlight and I have been lucky enough to pick up some wonderful awards like the Bob Hawke Medal in 2012 which have provided a vehicle to open the door and spread the word about the great stories of our Australian farmers and their produce right to office of the Prime Minister and thanks to AWI and their Young Farming Champions – Prince Charles but I don’t think anything has given me more of a buzz than this
