Your chance to plan route to a brilliant career

DO you have a bright idea that could turn into a business venture or a project that could kick-start your career?

If so, it could win you Farmplan computer equipment or software worth £500. Last years winner Alison Wilson even went on to find a new career through her winning "Bright Spark" proposal.

The 1999 competition demonstrates the support FARMERS WEEKLY, Farmplan and FWi has for the YFCs campaign "Putting the Young back into Farming".

It aims to promote the entrepreneurial spirit among the next generation living and working in rural areas.

Following last years high standard of entry the competition has been expanded, with a Junior and Senior category.

Juniors must be aged below 16 and seniors under 27 on the entry closing date, Aug 23, 1999. The contest is open to all young people in England, Wales, Scotland, Eire and Ulster, so you do NOT need to be a YFC member to compete.

&#42 Dont delay

So for a chance to win a valuable prize and the opportunity to access the instant news, markets, weather and information via Farmers Weekly Interactive (FWi) – indeed all the necessary information to turn you into a brilliant entrepreneur – enter without delay.

All you need to do is answer the questions in the panel opposite. In most cases, this means choosing the correct one from those suggested and marking it with a tick or cross. Then complete the coupon and send it off with the token cut from FARMERS WEEKLY to Farmers Weekly/FWi/Farmplan Bright Spark Competition, YFC Centre, National Agricultural Centre, Stoneleigh Park, Kenilworth, Warwickshire CV8 2LG.

This is stage one and a tie breaker will be used to select six finalists who will then be invited to present their entrepreneurial idea connected with the land-based sector to a panel of judges at the NAC, Stoneleigh, Warwicks, on Sat, Oct 2, 1999.

The final will take place during the NFYFC Competitions Day. Help towards travel expenses will be available.

This competition is supported by the Meat and Livestock Commision, and is also being promoted through the National Federation of Young Farmers clubs – but all entries must include the token cut from the Farmlife section of FARMERS WEEKLY, where it will appear for the next four weeks.
