Seek­ing voices of the fu­ture

Shepparton News - Country News - - NEWS -

Are you a young per­son with a pas­sion for agri­cul­ture? Are you are a for­ward thinker, ready to be heard? Could you be the voice of the fu­ture?

If this sounds like you, ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for the evokeAG Fu­ture Young Lead­ers pro­gram.

As part of the com­mit­ment to cel­e­brat­ing di­ver­sity of thought, the evokeAG Fu­ture Young Lead­ers Pro­gram will iden­tify 10 emerg­ing lead­ers within the food and agri­cul­ture in­dus­tries in Aus­tralia and New Zealand, who will at­tend evokeAG — an in­ter­na­tional agri­food tech­nol­ogy event in Fe­bru­ary next year in Mel­bourne.

Ap­pli­cants must be Aus­tralian or New Zealand cit­i­zens or per­ma­nent res­i­dents and aged be­tween 18 and 30 and they must cre­ate a short video ex­plain­ing why they should be se­lected as a voice of the fu­ture at evokeAG.

Eight fi­nal­ists will be cho­sen by a se­lec­tion panel, with the re­main­ing two fi­nal­ists de­cided by a pub­lic vote.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close at 11 pm on Oc­to­ber 12.

Win­ners will re­ceive a fiveminute pre­sen­ta­tion op­por­tu­nity at the event, as well as re­turn econ­omy air­fares, ac­com­mo­da­tion, air­port trans­fers and a del­e­gate pass. ■ To ap­ply, visit: https://­turey­oung-lead­ers/ and click on the Fu­ture Young Lead­ers tab.
