Eligibility

Eligible applicants must be:

Application Criteria

October is Agriculture Month in Saskatchewan, a time to celebrate agriculture and share our stories about food and farming. The theme for Agriculture Month is Our Food Has a Story. This theme presents an opportunity for everyone to tell stories of how food produced on the farm gets to the table, and to recognize the dedicated people it takes along the way to deliver healthy, affordable and safe products, sustainably.

Applications to the 2019 Agriculture Student Scholarship should be based on the same theme, Our Food Has a Story, while also addressing one or all of the Agriculture Month key messages of affordability, food safety, health and nutrition and sustainability.

Applicants must complete the application form and:

A) Produce a creative three-minute video or 1,000-word essay sharing their food story (criteria below).

B) Provide a letter of conditional acceptance to a post-secondary institution; and,

C) Provide a letter of recommendation from either a teacher/professor, agriculture industry leader or community leader.

Videos and written submissions will be judged by a review committee based on: alignment with the themes provided, development of ideas, structure and clarity, creativity and quality, and professionalism. Leadership qualities and school/community involvement in your letters of recommendation will also be taken into consideration.

The Ministry of Agriculture reserves the right to publish or promote all submissions as deemed appropriate. All personal information collected will not be used for any other purposes and will remain confidential.
