B+LNZ’s Food & Fibre Challenge is an interactive way of highlighting the many opportunities and careers within the primary sector to school leavers.
The first Food & Fibre challenge was at the 2020 Southern Field Days in Waimumu. Since then, it’s popped up across the country and has had over 600 students completed the challenge.
In an Amazing Race style format, the challenge has school students looking around for signs with different career labels. These careers included anything from an Agri-Manager to a Quarry Operator. Participants then filled out an answer sheet discovering the careers and information about the sector.
The challenge gives these school students something to do while learning about the many careers in our industry and it gives businesses who sponsor the challenge an opportunity to connect with schools leavers too.
