Join the movement of teachers and students working together with farmers to ensure everyone in this country has access to safe, affordable, healthy food and quality fibre every day and a brighter future for all.
Agriculture can be used to teach science, geography and maths in context. Did you know it can also be used to teach art and multimedia? In fact the opportunities are endless.
The Archibull Prize is a world renowned program with curriculum-linked teaching resources which explore the role agriculture plays in the health, wealth and happiness of Australians and many other people around the world.
Your students can not only win cash prizes for their creativity, they can put their town on the map by participating in The Archibull Prize!
It’s simple… the more students enjoy learning, the more they want to be at school and achieve.
Over the past five years The Archibull Prize program has consistently shown that the students involved were deeply engaged in the range of learning experiences the program provided.
Teachers saw the impacts first-hand of a successful combination of arts and multimedia activities, along with project-based processes across multiple key learning areas.
Put simply, The Archibull Prize is a successful addition to the learning program for students, teachers love it because it meets the needs of the curriculum and enhances classroom engagement, and communities are able to engage with the program and schools in a meaningful way.
In 2016 we are adding a new opportunity for you and your students to engage with agriculture – The Archibull Prize Connections Program. New challenges, new outcomes and a further enhancement of students’ abilities to connect with each other, their community and the agricultural sector through a digital world make this program a world first and a vibrant addition to the opportunities provided by Art4Agriculture and the Young Farming Champions program.
The Archibull Prize is an innovative and fun program which provides student participants with opportunities to meet young farmers and engage in genuine farm experiences, gain knowledge and skills about the production of the food they eat, fibres they use and the environment they live in. The theme celebrates the role Australian farmers' play in feeding Australian families and many other families around the world. The average person doesn't consider the resources required to keep a city well fed let alone the world! We intend on telling this story. The Archibull Prize is an integrated program which will engage primary and secondary school students in agricultural and environmental awareness through art, design, creativity and teamwork by:
