Oct. 29, 2012, Mississauga, ON – The producers of the Canadian International Farm Show are pleased to announce that, for the fourth year, they will be presenting a deserving student the ‘Youth in Agriculture’ educational bursary.
 
Since the event was taken over by Master Promotions Ltd. 5 years ago, we have annually given back to the Agriculture Community by presenting this bursary to a deserving student who is pursuing an agricultural based career, thus supporting the development of the next generation of agricultural leaders.
 
In 2013, we will present a $1,000.00 bursary to a qualified recipient. The selection committee will once again consist of and be managed by the Junior Farmers’ Association of Ontario.
 
We would once again like to congratulate our 2012 recipient, Ashleigh Landman from Grand Valley, Ontario. Ashleigh attends the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus, working towards her associate diploma in Agriculture. Her goals post graduation include taking over the family goat farm, which includes 150 milking does. Ashleigh plans on expanding and has future aspirations of an on-site dairy.
 
We wish her luck in all her future endeavours.
 
Master Promotions Ltd. would like to thank the Junior Farmers’ Association of Ontario for their assistance in administering and organizing a selection committee to determine the winners of these awards.

Also, we encourage members of the Agricultural community to nominate a deserving producer or agribusiness for our annual Producer of the Year Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize excellence in farm operations or any sort of Agribusiness. Individuals are encouraged to make nominations by completing the nomination form on our website before December 3rd, 2012.

Nominees must reside in the province of Ontario to be considered for this prestigious award. The awards will be presented at the Industry Reception on February 05, 2013 as part of the CIFS festivities.
