BRAND MUSTER CHALLENGE

2019 NATIONAL

BRAND MUSTER CHALLENGE 

 

 

ALL ENTRIES DUE LAST DAT OF TERM 3, FRIDAY 27TH SEPTEMBER

 

We have introduced a

NEW RESOURCE called

"Why Brand a Food Source?"

 'Design Clues' Factsheet

 

We use DESIGN as a new and innovative way to make learning and teaching large scale agricultural concepts easier, especially for teachers and students with little or no agricultural background.

 

These brand designs help us monitor the effectiveness of the course by indicating the level of connection students have with this great food source, In so doing, it raises their awareness for food sources in general.

 

At Food River Station, we believe that connecting with a place is fundamental to caring for it. This all-important ethic of care helps us achieve our objectives of

SUSTAINABLE AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURE & FOOD SECURITY.

 

So go ahead and enjoy designing, but please read the conditions of entry by clicking on image above.
