Win a trip to Canada – enter now

There are three weeks left to enter our competition to win a trip to Canada to attend the Youth Ag Summit.

The competition is open to anyone from the UK between the ages of 18 and 25 who has something to say about how agriculture can secure global food supplies.

Delegates from 20 countries including Australia, India and China will gather in Calgary, Alberta, from 19-25 August to hear from scientists and business leaders about the challenges and opportunities facing farmers in their efforts to produce more food.

The young people will then share their own ideas and come up with a plan of how global agriculture can secure sustainable food supplies in the face of diminishing resources.

Thanks to conference sponsor Bayer CropScience, a person from the UK will win an all-expenses-paid place at the summit to have their say on the role agriculture can play in tackling one of the world’s biggest challenges.

For a chance to win a place at the conference, entrants must write a 1,400-word article or produce a five-minute video on whether farming is doing enough to tackle national and global food security.

As well as discussing what food security is and the issues surrounding it, entries must come up with solutions and strategies for dealing with and overcoming the problem.

A version of the winning article or video will be published by Farmers Weekly and will be used to help form the basis of the seven-day summit.

Articles or links to your YouTube video must be emailed to by Friday 1 March and should be accompanied by a high-quality photograph of the entrant.
