A video showcasing one member’s YFC Travel adventure to Switzerland has been chosen as the winner of the best 2016 travel presentation.
Aimee Mahony from Market Bosworth YFC in Leicestershire visited Switzerland earlier this year for two weeks and put together an inspiring film about her adventure, using music, photos and facts.

Everyone who gets the opportunity to go on a YFC Travel trip is asked to create a presentation detailing their experience. Most presentations are created in Powerpoint format but Aimee decided to make her presentation more interactive.

Aimee said: “I'm absolutely over the moon to win the award. I had a great time in Switzerland and have done a number of club meetings and a county travel evening to encourage other members to apply since returning to the UK.

“The presentation has been useful for these events and also is a lovely keepsake for me to remind me of the fantastic time I had on my trip. It's also a good way of showing my family and friends an overview of my trip rather than trawling through the thousands of photos I took whilst on exchange! I'd recommend a YFC travel trip to everyone, there really is no better way to experience the way of life in another country.”

All the presentations were judged by members Katie Hall, Gloucestershire FYFC , Russell Carrington, Herefordshire FYFC and Robert Williams from Devon FYFC, who shortlisted four applications for Paul Entwistle from the NFU to choose the final winners.

In second place was Joanna Gillingham  from Wiltshire FYFC who created a Powerpoint presentation detailing the reasons why you should choose to go to New Zealand to work on Limestone Downs Farm. In third place was Alistair Hughes from Leicestershire FYFC who put together an engaging Powerpoint presentation to reveal more about his trip to Canada.

The winners will receive a trophy at the Annual General Meeting in Torquay and a goodie pack.
