Students - Enter to Win one of Five FarmTech™ conference passes

With over 50 world-class speaker sessions and hundreds of producers to network with, FarmTech™ is a prime opportunity for Alberta’s graduate students to take in one of the best professional development opportunities in the agriculture industry.

Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) sees great value in investing in our future scientific experts in crop production and variety development. That’s why we are pleased to invite graduate students carrying out agriculture-related studies to enter our contest to win 1 of 5 FarmTech™ conference passes.

If you are conducting graduate research at an Alberta post-secondary institution in an agriculture field in an area that impacts wheat production, you are eligible for a chance to win a free FarmTech™ pass.

To enter our draw, students must write 300 words (maximum) on their research and why attending FarmTech™ would benefit them in their training. Entries can be emailed to Lauren Comin, AWC Research Manager, at lcomin@albertawheat by January 4th, 2017. AWC will draw five applicants on January 4th and will contact the winners. Successful applicants will be required to complete a short article detailing their FarmTech™ experience.

FarmTech™ 2017 is being held on January 31st - Febriary 2, 2017 at the Edmonton EXPO Centre at Northlands and is hosted by Alberta Barley, the Alberta Canola Producers Commission, the Alberta Pulse Growers, the Alberta Seed Growers Association, and the Alberta Wheat Commission.
