Awards and Honors for Agricultural Projects

There is nothing like recieving recognition when you’ve done a great project!  Students who are challenged to enter their agricultural projects into competition recieve feedback, recognition, honors, awards - even cash!  Awards look great on a resume and job applications. and can turn your college application from standard to extra-ordinary.

You would be suprised at who wins awards – students who are passionate about their project, are articulate when they talk about what they’ve learned, what they like and don’t like, who can think ‘outside the box’  – these students stand out in their applications.  Don’t worry about whether your project is innovative (unless you’re applying for an innovation award).  Just do the best you can, and share your experience in the way you communicate best – whether this is through writing, blogging, video, art… share your excitement, your frustrations, your challenges and your triumphs!  And you never know – maybe you will be the next one bringing home the honors!  Good luck!
