Since history, women have played a pivotal role in agricultural activities from reaping to preparing the food produced. The JAS continues to recognize the significant role our Jamaican women play in the development of agriculture.
The competition is one avenue through which the Society encourages young women to participate and to become actively involved in the diverse field of agriculture.
The participants will be given the unique opportunity to build and enhance skills in communication, knowledge of the sector, poise in presentations and confidence in individual abilities for personal and professional growth.
The competition is based on dissemination of information from research, current affairs, and global perspective on agricultural and environmental issues capsulated by grace and poise.
