ROYAL AGRICULTURAL WINTER FAIR

Each year the renowned public speaking competition is held at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. The competition is open to youth ages 11 to 24 with a passion for agriculture whether raised on a farm, in the country or in the city.
 
Canadian Young Speakers for Agriculture is a national, bilingual competition that gives participants an opportunity to share their opinions, concerns and solutions affecting the Canadian agriculture and agri-food industries in a five- to seven-minute prepared speech.
 
Since the first competition held at the Royal Winter Fair in honour of the International Year of the Youth in 1985, it has gone on to become the premier public speaking event in Canada for young people interested in agriculture, with more than 1000 participants over the last 32 years.
