Young Leader Award winners announced

Some great news to start off the week: I have just learned that I am one of the winners of the IFAJ-Alltech Young Leaders Award this year!

This means I’ll be attending the 2010 International Federation of Agricultural Journalists congress in Belgium this spring as one of ten young leaders from around the world. The award is sponsored by Alltech, a global animal health company, and the IFAJ, a non-political, professional association for agricultural journalists.

This year’s other winners include Andrea Bahrenberg, Germany; Liza Burger, South Africa; Jesus Colmenarejo, Spain; Margaret Donnelly, Ireland; Tatjana Kren Hlebic, Slovenia; Aleksandar Radovic, Serbia; Soledad Ricca, Argentina; Terhi Torikka, Finland and Sarah Trickett, UK.

The congress is held in a different IFAJ member country every year and in 2011, it will be coming to Canada, for the first time since 1967. It’ll be a great opportunity to showcase Canada’s agriculture to the world’s farm journalists…stay tuned for more updates on this blog as the event gets closer or on I’ll also be sharing my experiences in Belgium here as well.
