4-H Canada has announced the continuation of a long-standing national partnership with founding Science & Technology Leadership Development Pillar partner Bayer Crop Science Canada, via a five-year, $500,000 contribution agreement focused on engaging more 4-H youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs.
“Our partnership with Bayer is critical to building capacity around STEM for 4-H youth across Canada,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada CEO. “With their unfailing support, we will continue to provide access and maintain interest in STEM in rural communities through our science programs, and to empower youth to be responsible, caring and contributing leaders that affect positive change in the world around them.”
4-H Canada and Bayer have been working together for five years.
“Some of the increasing issues of Canadian consumers – access to healthy and affordable food and climate change – need to be solved by creative, passionate scientists, and we believe 4-H Canada is the partner to attract and inspire young talent to be the change makers we need now for a better tomorrow,” said Al Driver, Country Division Head of Bayer Crop Science Canada.
The 4-H Canada Science Fair is now in its fifth year. In 2019, two finalists advanced nationally, bringing home bronze medals at the Intermediate Level from the Canada-Wide Science Fair.Click here to see more...
