2018 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship Winners Announced

Released on May 8, 2018

Today, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart presented four agriculture scholarships to students from across the province.

“The future of our industry relies on dedicated, inspiring young individuals,” Stewart said.  “This year, there was no shortage of outstanding applicants deserving of this award.”

Emma Hinz of Humboldt, received $4,000 toward her agriculture-related post-secondary studies as the grand-prize winner of the 2018 Agriculture Student Scholarship.  Emma’s winning essay submission discussed how her unique dietary restrictions have shaped her food story and helped her recognize the importance of agricultural advancements.

“I’m excited to share my food story with Saskatchewan,” Hinz said.  “I am also excited to share Saskatchewan’s food story with the rest of the world.”


Laura Carruthers of Frenchman Butte, Kati Culbertson of Redvers and Crystal Daniel of Avonlea received runner-up scholarships valued at $2,000.

The Agriculture Student Scholarship Program identifies young people who are advocates for agriculture and leverages their passion and ability to tell the story of Saskatchewan agriculture.

“I would like to congratulate the four winners of this year’s scholarship and thank them, along with all of the other applicants, for their dedication to the industry,” Stewart said.

Applicants were required to provide a letter of reference and submit a 1,000 word science-based essay or a three-minute video-based on their personal food story.
