ANNOUNCING OUR NATIONAL AGDAY CAREERS COMPETITION

In conjunction with The Archibull Prize, Art4Agriculture is launching our second careers competition to coincide with National Agriculture Day on November 21. This year Art4Agriculture is pleased to partner with Career Harvest and Aimee Snowden’s Little Brick Pastoral to encourage students in Years 5-12 to envisage their own career in STEM based agriculture.

Aimee Snowden has created ten STEM agricultural photographs showcasing LEGO® minifigures to represent science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers. The careers are an agribusiness banker, an agriculture teacher, an agronomist, a biosecurity officer, an engineer, a geneticist, a GIS specialist, a mechanic, a scientist and a stock and station agent.

Students may choose one of Aimee’s characters on which to base their entry or alternatively may build and photograph their own LEGO® character. They are then asked to identify their interests and the subjects they excel at, research pathways they might take to achieve their agricultural dream and to write a day-in-the-life story on their chosen career.

Entries will take the form of an infographic and prizes will be available for each section of the competition.
