The annual Hermitage Plant Science Competition has been dedicated to the UN International Year of Pulses in 2016. Blue Ribbon Group is proud to support the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries plant science competition in its 20th year.
Registration is now open for P-12 students to undertake science and art projects that celebrate the unique qualities of pulses and to show how 'My Pulse Rules'.
Such is the enthusiasm for this competition that 109 schools had already registered even before the competition officially opened in January. Agriculture Minister Leanne Donaldson said this is the perfect occasion for students to celebrate and be clever with legumes by entering a national competition.
The wide-ranging project categories will see creative and scientific entries that shine the light on how pulses are feeding the world and enriching the environment.
Blue Ribbon Group and Foods from the Earth are also the primary industry sponsor of the International Year of Pulses campaign in Australia.Read more...
