Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship Winners Announced

Released on May 5, 2015

Four Saskatchewan Students Receive Funding to Pursue Education

Today, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart awarded $10,000 in scholarships to four students from across the province.

“It is encouraging to see the youth of Saskatchewan passionate about building a career in our strong and vibrant agriculture industry,” Stewart said.  “Future generations have an important role to play in building the public’s understanding of how the industry is working to meet the increasing global demand for food.”

Grand prize winner Morgan Heidecker from Middle Lake will receive $4,000 for her video submission.  The video highlights her passion for agriculture and her drive to enter an industry she describes as timeless, challenging and full of opportunity.

“Agriculture has made a tremendous impact on my life and I always viewed it as a natural fit career-wise,” Heidecker said.  “I want to be a part of an industry that is changing and adapting all of the time; it is clear just how vital the industry is when you look at the growing population.”


Runner-up scholarships of $2,000 were awarded to Shelby Evans of Kenaston, Alyxandria Harland of Lloydminster and Cassandra Maurer of Grenfell.

“I want to congratulate these deserving winners and thank all of the applicants for thinking about agriculture,” Stewart said.  “I wish you all the best as you pursue your education and build a career in this thriving industry.”

Applicants were required to provide a letter of reference and submit a 1,000 word fact-based essay or a three minute video demonstrating why they thinkAG in their career pursuits.

thinkAG is a Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture initiative designed to promote opportunities in the agriculture industry.
