Junior Journalist Program (Ages 5-16 years)
We know across NSW thousands of young people spend their daily lives growing up linked to agriculture. This may be through life on farms or maybe through links to family business including agri-tourism, supply chain and restaurants linked to local producers. They may also actively participate in agricultural shows. We want to provide these young people with a chance to share their experiences whilst providing learning opportunities for others.
Our Junior Journalist Program provides such a platform. The program sees our junior journalists interview their family members about their agricultural businesses, why they chose a career in agriculture and the skills they require daily. Our young journalists also share an editorial about their life in agriculture and their knowledge about their aspect of the industry . Their interviews will form part of our My Life in Agriculture series and will be linked to our learning programs.
