The four recipients for this year's  Agriculture Student Scholarship Program will attend the College of Agriculture and Bioresources at the University of Saskatchewan in the fall, with their fields of study ranging from animal health and welfare to agribusiness and agricultural sciences. 

The grand prize recipient, Marleigh Mann from Lloydminster, was awarded $6,000.

Her essay highlighted the future of sustainable agriculture, promoting innovation, adaptability and the overall vitality of the industry while building public trust and transparency through educational opportunities such as farm tours and social media campaigns surrounding sustainable agricultural practices.   

Mann sees the agriculture industry heading in a positive direction. 

"I really believe agriculture is going to continue to thrive and I've already seen that in my own community. We have a big world to feed and sustainable agriculture practices will keep getting better. The future certainly is bright."   

The other three recipients, Clare Wever from Lloydminster, Katie Moyle from Hanley, and Madalynn Anderson from Rosetown, will receive $3,000 each.

The Agriculture Student Scholarship is funded through the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a five-year, $3.5 billion investment by Canada's federal, provincial and territorial governments that supports Canada's agri-food and agri-products sectors.
