International Year of the Pulses
The intention of the GEN AG Program is to inspire high school students to consider careers in agriculture by engaging them in exploring the diversity of agriculture-related career opportunities available in their home provinces, in Canada and around the world.
During GEN AG 2017, students will work together in small groups as marketing companies in order to develop and implement creative and innovative marketing ideas that promote ag-sector careers to high school students in their schools.
Each class participating in GEN AG 2017 will be eligible for the following supports:
· a free field trip or classroom presentation
· $100 per group to support development and implementation of marketing ideas
A minimum of seven classes is required to deliver the program. Additional class time may be required. If students from your class advance to the provincial GEN AG Competition, then more time will be required in order to prepare them for the competition.
