Two new categories added to the Farmers Weekly Awards 2020
Sustainability and protecting the environment has always been an important factor in the judging of our awards. But to recognise the growing importance of these issues we are creating a new Environmental Champion of the Year award. The winner, chosen from among the finalists of the other award categories, will be the person judged to have made the biggest improvement in the environmental impact of their farming activities.
By popular demand, we’re bringing back the Agricultural Student of the Year award. This category always attracted a particularly high number of entries, and given the importance of bringing talented young people into farming, we felt obliged re-introduce this award.
“Every year we review our award categories to make sure they continue to reflect the range of achievements that deserve recognition and reward in the changing world of farming,” said Karl Schneider, Editor-in-Chief of Farmers Weekly.
