Kate, Lisa, Brianne

The University of Guelph was well represented at the 2018 Annual Canadian Agri-Food Policy Conference, where three University of Guelph graduate students placed in the top three for the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Agricultural Policy Briefing Note contest.

Sweeping the competition was Kate Jones (MSc FARE) placing first; Lisa Wong (MSc FARE) placing second; and Brianne Chan (MSc FARE) placing third.

The Policy Brief Competition required students to write a policy briefing note, providing content and advice to the Assistant Deputy Minister of the Strategic Policy Branch at AAFC on a policy issue. Winners received cash prizes and free registration to the next CAPC conference.

The conference is known as the premier national policy outlook for the agri-food sector, addressing current issues in Canadian agri-food policy.

Congratulations to Brianne, Lisa, and Kate!
