Aorangi & Tasman FMG Young Farmer Of The Year Regional Finals Postponed

Statement by NZ Young Farmers CEO, Lynda Coppersmith in regards to Covid-19 and the FMG Young Farmer of the Year contest:

“Following the Government’s announcement this week on restricting large events across the country, we’ve made the decision to postpone the next two FMG Young Farmer of the Year Regional Finals.

Aorangi and Tasman will now be held at a later date that is yet to be confirmed.

No decision has yet been made around Otago/Southland Regional Final.

The AgriKids and FMG Junior Young Farmer of the Year competitions have been moved to a closed contest online for the remaining three Regional Finals.

Teams who have entered will now take part in an online quiz–the online quiz is currently being assessed and further information will be released this week.

The safety of our competitors, staff and spectators and it is imperative that we don’t put anyone at risk and do what we can to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Like other organisations across the country, we are waiting on further direction from the Government on hosting events. This will help provide us with the clarity we need to reorganise plans.

Our immediate priority in the coming days is to communicate with all of our Regional Final competitors, committees and clubs and formulate a plan going forward.

We appreciate many of you will have questions around rearranging these events and the potential impact on the Grand Final.

We’ll keep you updated and distribute information as we can."

His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
