Win an activity filled weekend away for teachers and students in beautiful North Wales in the Vale of Clwyd – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The weekend experience will be Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th October 2020

You and your students are invited to spend the weekend on a working commercial farm at Coleg Cambria Llysfasi, Ruthin, North Wales. Now in its third year you and your students will be immersed into the world of food production, farming and environment. Llysfasi is a land-based college with departments in Agriculture, Agricultural Engineering, Animal Care and Forestry and Countryside Management. The college has 970 acres and is a working farm with dairy cows, sheep, beef cattle, crops, forestry and an animal management centre. The National Competition is a collaboration with LEAF Education – working to inspire future generations about farming, food and the natural environment and delivering to over 16,000 young people last year and 518 schools across England and Wales.

The weekend prize will be for the schools that best answer the questions below; the winning teams will be from 7 schools – up to 2 teachers and 3 students (aged 14-16) from each school.

The weekend will be made up of fun and educational activities based around the college farm. You will experience milking cows, handling sheep, tour the animal centre, have a drone demonstration, learn about countryside management, visit the Agri-forest, have a go at tractor driving and operating a mini digger, experience modern technology used in farming and much more.

The weekend will have a range of educational topics, focused around the competition title and you will compete in answering a competition hypothesis over the weekend – the winning school team will be crowned the ‘Innovation school of the year 2020 in food, farming and environment.’

The questions overleaf are to be answered by the teacher who has a passion for food, farming and environment, with a short video from your students giving their thoughts and consideration to the competition title. Completed forms should be returned to education@leafuk.org by
