Schools harvest $12,000 in prizes from the Ag Show
Winners of this year’s Agricultural Exhibition schools competitions shared $12,000 in prize money yesterday.
Several public and private schools received cheques for their participation in the virtual Ag show.
First place winners received $1,150, while second place won $950 and third place won $500.
Axis Capital, an insurance and reinsurance firm which funded this year’s Ag Show, donated the cash to the top three submissions on the preschool, primary school and middle school categories.
Two schools were also selected for the secondary school and extraordinary school categories.
Cathy Bassett, a volunteer schools coordinator for the Agricultural Exhibition, said: “We’d really like to thank Axis Capital for all they’ve done.
“Had they not stepped up and did what they did, we would not be here today.”
