Winners will receive up to R300 000 in prize money.

On the following day, 16 July 2010, there will be a Youth Conference for young people who are involved and interested in farming as a career. The objective of the conference is to provide an opportunity for young farmers to interact with the LDA about their challenges and successes in the farming sector. Young farmers will also share experiences amongst themselves and strategise as to how they can make a positive contribution to food security and the agricultural economy.
The conference will be hosted at the same venue (Oasis Lodge in Polokwane).
The media is invited to both the occasions.
