2020 Tournez-vous vers l'excellence! Contest

Registration is now closed. Thank you for your participation!

Finalists will be announced in mid-July 2020.

Winners will be announced at the Colloque gestion of the Quebec Reference Center for Agriculture and Agri-food (CRAAQ) on November 24, 2020, in Victoriaville.

To highlight the 15th edition of this contest, the first 15 entries automatically won an admission to the awards ceremony. If this is your case, you will receive a confirmation email by May 22.

This contest is open to young agricultural entrepreneurs who, thanks to their professional skills and managerial qualities, stand out for the excellence of their profile.

Five grants will be awarded, totalling $13,000:

  • $5,000 to the grand prize winner
  • $2,500 to the other two winners
  • $1,500 to the most outstanding candidate in terms of sustainable development
  • $1,500 to the candidate with the most outstanding coaching or mentoring. This grant is awarded by the Fonds d’investissement pour la relève agricole (FIRA), an agricultural succession investment fund.

By holding this contest, La Financière Agricole du Québec shows the importance that it attaches, as well as CRAAQ, to training and a set of individual qualities and talents paving the way for a sound farming profession.
