Canadian Western Agribition’s (CWA) Education Program is now in its 31st year and will see more than 8,100 kids representing over 280 classes pass through the show this week – a record high. The students will learn about Canadian agriculture first-hand with animals and interactive displays.
The thinkAG Career and Education Expo at CWA will allow high school students to explore career and post-secondary education opportunities in agriculture, and learn about modern food production.
The expanded Food Pavilion showcases local food products. Consumer interest in food continues to grow, and this pavilion allows for dialogue between producers and consumers. This year, visitors will be able to visit a ranch without leaving CWA using virtual reality technology.
