The contest deadline was May 27, 2016.
Our thanks to everyone who entered!
La Financière agricole will announce the finalists in July.
This contest is for new farm entrepreneurs who, through their professional skills and management qualities, stand apart with a profile of excellence.
To win: one $5000 grant and two $2500 grants
The aim of the Contest Tournez-vous vers l'excellence! is to showcase the individual contribution of entrepreneurs. Note that only one person may present a candidature per operation, even if the operation has two associates with equal shares.
The FIRA will award a $1 500 grant to one of 10 finalists who will have distanced himself by the relevance of his formation as well as by the importance of his supervision and/or his mentorship in the success of his business project.
The winners will be announced in the framework of the Colloque Gestion (Business convention) of the Centre de référence en agriculture et agroalimentaire du Québec (CRAAQ), on November 23, 2016, in Drummondville.
By opening this contest, La Financière agricole du Québec, in conjunction with CRAAQ, seeks to demonstrate the importance it accords to solid training and the acquisition of qualities and skills that pave the way to exercising a profession in agriculture.
