Caroline Trude from Devon FYFC has been named as the winner of this year’s Young Farmers Ambassador (YFA) YFC Travel competition.

The annual competition was open to all YFC members who took part in a YFC Travel trip in 2012/13.Travellers were asked to produce a powerpoint presentation about their trip that could be used to help promote the YFC Travel programme and inspire other members to apply.

Caroline’s winning powerpoint was packed with pictures and information about her trip to Canada which included the Youth Ag Summit and celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of Canada 4H, the Canadian equivalent of YFC.

After the summit Caroline continued to explore Canada with other YFC travellers, visiting Vancouver and wildlife spotting in the Rocky Mountains. She described her YFC Travel experience as “the trip of a lifetime”.

Caroline will be presented with the YFA Trophy as well £50 towards the cost of the next YFA reunion at the NFYFC Annual Convention in May.

The competition was judge by YFC members Aimee Mahony and Andrew Cartwright. They are both members of YFA, a group of past YFC travellers who meet regularly and raise funds to support the YFC Travel programme. Aimee said:

"I really enjoyed judging the PowerPoint competitions, they brought back great memories from my own trips and Caroline's presentation met all of the criteria and really made me want to visit Canada myself!

"I think everyone who has the opportunity should travel with the YFC programme and then join the YFA. Becoming a Young Farmers Ambassador means you can help to give someone the same travel opportunities you had and it also means you can continue to have endless adventures!"
