Amanda Mitchell of Bracken was the grand prize win­ner of a $4,000 schol­ar­ship though Saskatchewan’s 2017 Agri­cul­ture Stu­dent Schol­ar­ship.

Mitchell’s video was se­lected as the win­ning en­try in the province-wide schol­ar­ship com­pe­ti­tion. Schol­ar­ship ap­pli­cants were re­quired to share their own per­sonal food story through a three minute video or a 1,000 word es­say.

Her video told the story of a piece of bread and de­scribed her farm’s role in wheat pro­duc­tion from seed­ing to har­vest and be­yond.

“There are so many mis­con­cep­tions and myths sur­round­ing agri­cul­ture,” Mitchell stated in a press re­lease. “I wanted to be able to show how food comes from real farms with real peo­ple.”

The trio of Bray­den Fraser of Church­bridge, Rachael Enns of Osler, plus Dena Lamb of Regina all re­ceived $2,000 run­ner-up schol­ar­ships.
