  • Grant Amount: $25,000

New Zealand National Fieldays Society Inc. (the Society) is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 1968 by a group of like-minded and passionate farmers. The Society’s mission is to advance agriculture in New Zealand, primarily through their annual agricultural Fieldays event.

During Fieldays 2017 the Society showcased their Careers & Education Hub exhibitors through an e-learning app. This assisted pre-booked school groups and visitors moving through the hub connecting with each exhibitor, where they had the opportunity to ask questions gain knowledge, have fun and get excited about the possibility of a career in agriculture. Over four days 597 students (primarily year 12 and 13) participated in collaborative and interactive learning programmes.

“The AGMARDT leadership and governance programme grant supported us in turning up the focus on our pillar of education with the Careers and Education Hub at Fieldays“.  Peter Nation, CEO, New Zealand National Fieldays Society”
