Saskatchewan names recipients for the 2022 Agriculture Student Scholarship

The scholarship is the province's commitment to developing young agriculture leaders by identifying passionate advocates and supporting their continued studies in agriculture.

Karly Rumpel, a Public Trust Specialist with the Ministry of Agriculture says once again they received a number of outstanding applications.

Emily Sebastian of Montmartre was the grand prize winner and was awarded a $4,000 scholarship towards her post-secondary studies.

Emily's video submission discussed the various ways that farmers and ranchers can effectively communicate with consumers in a transparent and honest manner. Emily will be furthering her education at the University of Saskatchewan at the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. 

Sebastian says the scholarship is a great way to express your ideas and gives you an opportunity to make a difference in the agriculture industry.

"More than that, though, it makes you think about what you can do to become more transparent about your, or your family's operation." 

The other scholarship winners are Kristie Pedersen from Lockwood, Grace Waldenberger from Marquis and Kate Axten from Minton, they take home $2,000 each.

Kristie's essay explored how communication and education is key to bridging the gap between the farm and the plate. She focused her transparency essay on the whole supply chain and the need for everyone to share their story. Kristie will be furthering her education in Moose Jaw where she will be studying in the Agriculture and Food Production Program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
