2017 School Farm Winners announced

Blue Skies has awarded winners of the 2017 School Farm of the Year during a ceremony at the GNAT Hall in Koforidua, Ghana on the 30th of November.

Over 600 students attended the ceremony representing sixty schools who participated in this year’s School Farm of the Year Competition.

The School Farm of the Year competition was launched by Blue Skies in 2015 as a way to encourage more young people to take an interest in farming, and help raise the profile of agriculture.

In the competition, schools are required to setup and manage their own ‘School Farms’ and submit business plans to ensure their sustainability. Teams of inspectors made up of agricultural experts visit the participating schools periodically to assess their performance and ultimately determine the winners.

This year the SHS School Farm of the Year was awarded to Krobo Girls Senior High School (pictured below), and the JHS School Farm of the Year was awarded to Ankwane Dobro MA JHS.
